Marcel, The Hat was made by Tonak but possibly for a English source. Tonak made hats for many different sources. The largest in the same time period was FWS Köln with the Stenton mark. Today FWS Köln are Stetson Europe.

Here is an early Tonak "Austrian" Zephyr Seal Velour made for Dunn & Co Paper Label. Similar format as your later Paper Label but yours doesn't mention Tonak (that is fairly common for later sourced Hats). Your Hat has a CM size and not an English Size. Where was the seller located?

This is good information to know from Steve @mayserwegener .

I have an Anderson just like yours apart from the colour Marcel. I always thought it was made by Cervo. Perhaps it was made by Tonak for Cervo.
Steve, This Hat was definitely made by Tonak. As I mentioned the Sweatband and Liner are also typical of Tonak from this time period. Might be worth searching for the "Anderson" trademark. It could be a distributor like FWS Köln.

Steve, I have absolutely no doubt that you are right. I was in no way questioning your judgement.

Here's a "Cervo" I have. Obviously made by Tonak. Who else in Czechoslavakia after WWII?

Steve, No problem, I just didn't want to cause confusion. After WWII all factories were nationalized as Tonak. Only JHS Main Factory (Nový Jičín) and Janyška Factory (Valašské Meziříčí – Krásno about 25 km from Nový Jičín) survived as Tonak. The Janyška Factory closed in the early 1960s.

P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Qualität", 58 cm, 147 grams, possibly early to mid 1920s. This is an older one based on the Paper Label type and the use of city name Cassel vs. Kassel. In 1926 the city name was officially changed to Kassel.** The Black Felt has a superb finish / hand. The Form is impressive with a taller Crown and less side tapper. The component quality and workmanship are excellent which is always the case with P. & C. Habig Wien. The overall condition is very good especially for its age.

The Worker's "Arb." surname appears to be "Makovsky". I will have to see if I can find something about him.
