Thank you, Steve!
The elusive tailored edge... nice!
Another superb early hat. Great find Justin!
You spoil us with these, but please do! Wonderful.
Did anyone else catch the 7 1/8 size sticker on the sweatband but the 7 1/4 reorder tag? Pretty interesting....
Good find Justin. I had my eye on that one but totally forgot about the auction. Glad you picked it up!
Glad you let it slip into my hands, Josh!! I noticed that too, and thought it was decently funny. We are all human after all! When it came i was surprised to see no issues at all. perfect
c.1930s/40s Stetson Special
1930s Stetson Standard Quality
Lot looks like #7288 or 7286, not sure on last digit
What a great hat with great color in fantastic condition: Congrats!
John B Stetson & Co. stiff felt derby. Green / brown in color.
This fella was the unfortunate victim of terrible shipping practices...
Maybe someone could set me straight on dating this. 1900s? I don't recall seeing examples of the tag before. Also the use of "John B Stetson & Co." is interesting.
That is just a shame. Such a cool old derby too. Is it savable?
Thanks, I took the pictures. The last photo is how I received it. Popped it back out but some light steam may help.
Ouch! Looks savable if there aren't any rips. Looks very old. Im no expert but I'd guess 1890s or 1900s. Definitely has a wild west vibe.
I was searching high and low for this post - I think I found a close match in this little bowler. Maybe you'll catch this reply?
Robert has been gone for a long time, and I dont forsee his return.
i want to say probably late 1800s into verrrry early 1900s. how's it looking now?
Yes, I figured when I found the original post (Stetson Pre-40 vs Non-Stetson Pre-40!) he will at least get the alert.
For now his profile says he logged in January of this year. He's had some great hats and knowledge on the board, I've been reading a lot of his stuff over the years; maybe he'll make another appearance!

Silver/Grey long hair. Hats sweatband was replaced at some point in it's life with a "Mallory Ten" band.
