    A Two hat, new hat day today. First, an eBay find last week. I wanted to get it home and unwrapped before I posted this Churchill Beaver 50 OR Clone. Smooth putty like felt is very comparable to the 7XCB's I have handled but the felt is stiffer (nothing like modern hats). About as close to NOS condition as I have ever found.

    Second, a wonderful purchase from a fantastic Lounger and, in my opinion, an expert in all thing German hats - Steve @mayserwegener

    A beautiful 20's/30's model Mauerer bowler from Austria. Perfect condition with a frayed bow and a wonderful pleated liner. Thank you, Steve.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    As nice a felt as you’re gonna find Randy.
    Some of the thinnest most dense felt to be had that molds to amaze considering how firm the felt is. A very interesting hat felt and in the upper top ten hats imho. You are now in with only a handful of 50s around here. Destined to be a favorite i think.
    Enjoy!

    Ps: would love to see pics out in the sunlight.

    Two spectacular hats, Randy. The derby looks amazing for its age and it has all the bells and whistles that make old hats so interesting.

    The Churchill is a hat I covet. The 50s and 100s are rare and sought after. I hope you can coax it to fit perfectly; you well might not see another come your way.

    Thank you, gents, I'm liking the Churchill. It is a fine felt, no doubt. I'll have to make Churchill a more frequent "search" so I don't miss another that might come along :) Windy today here but I will try to get some pics in the sunlight in the next couple of days.

    Thanks all.

    Thank you, Steve, the Mauerer is very nice. The sweatband is so soft and subtle I'd almost think it was new and just put on yesterday. I'm starting to get the hang of the derby hats, too.

    Congrats Randy, both are very nice and suit you very well, great score! I particularly like the Churchill, I've sent an offer to the seller for this one too and I am glad you finally got it :)

    You certainly are, my friend. They look very good on you and you under them.

    Looking forward to it, Daniele:)
    The liner could have been added later of course as a replacement. It certainly has the hallmarks of and older hat and the liner seems newer to me. The shape and style of the hat remind me of the Sools hat, also of unknown origin, you once found for me (I don't wear it enough - mea culpa). Note the same tall crown, wide overwelt brim and wide ribbon.

    An Adam arrived today from @Bill Hughes.

    It's already been tweaked.

    Some before-n-afters:

    As you can see, it had an easy diamond and a wide front pinch. I narrowed the front, and sharpened up the diamond into sort of an arrowhead diamond.

    Congrats, Randy!
    I have a couple of Beaver 50s, and I like the way you described the felt.
    My first 50 I bought from Gunloader. It was in Bowen's care, and that is why his balcony appears in the first pic. The second I got on eBay, and is stiffer still, because it's more Western.
    The last four pics are of a Churchill One Hundred that used to belong to Alan, and three pictures are his. The felt in the One Hundred is even better than the felt in the 50s, IMO, although some opine that the difference in price between a 50 and a 100 was due to the cost of the leather case.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I still recall the first time I saw Alan’s photos of the 100. A 50 or 100 is a bucket list hat for me. The 50 I had for a couple of weeks (it was a couple sizes too small) was nicer than any of the three Stetson One-Hundreds that have passed through my hands.
