    1900s Stetson Expo w/ 'The Fray' sweatband.

    I am unable to read the LOT number, as it looks faded. I can only make out a '2', but the sweat is so thin, I don't want it to tear. The hat is black, my camera just has issues when it comes to photographing darker shades for some reason.

    You can also see the '2' I was referring to in the top left for the partial LOT number.

    :arated: Wonderful deep stampings all over the place - textured leather - and a fat "welted"(?) edge. Beautiful! :)

    The sweatband is not original, but other than that, the hat is in immaculate shape! Only a few minor moth nibbles. The color is a light tan with a brown ribbon. Very nice in person! Sadly, I am unable to locate any reorder tag stickers.

    That's a fine looking hat, Justin... one has to wonder what parts are original to the hat body. It wears great.

    This hat initially came to me as an email inquiry from the museum http://www.thehatmuseum.com/

    I answer emails and curate for this museum in Portland, Oregon.

    The gal wanted to know what she had and what it was worth - was in the attic of the house she bought. I contacted a few potential interested parties here and she listed it on ebay anyway. The winning bid belonged to a former member here (long since banned for political rants). He recently listed it on Ebay and I took it home. So its been an interesting and familiar piece. Yes, the ribbon is original!
