    I'm thinning out my vintage collection of lids, but before I list anything here......I want to see how many might be interested, otherwise, I'll try eBay or Etsy......I'd rather sell them here though.

    What do I have? they are mostly a size 7, with a few 6 7/8's. About a dozen or more wide brims, and twice that are Stingy.
    Stetson, Dobbs, Knox, Adams, Resistol, Borso, Portis, Champ, Mallory, Wormser, to name a few.
    Serious inquires only, thanks for looking.

    Bolthead,

    I'm a 7, though sometimes a 6 7/8 can fit me with a bit of stretching. How wide are the wide brims? And I've been a fan of Resistols for a while.

    I'm also size 7 and interested to see what you have in the wider brims. Waiting right now to take delivery of a size 7 Panama from a FL member.

    This last one is French Made, I cant make out the manufacturer because the liner under the tip is faded and the tip is shiny. It's in great shape, hardly worn, smoke free home. This is the stingiest brim I own. No stains or moth damage. Very nice Olive green (dark) color. Size 7. I'm asking $60 shipped,for this very unusual, rare hat. Paypal only, CONUS
    Crown is 4 7/8" with a center dent.
    Ribbon is 1 3/8" black velour pugaree style.
    Brim is a 1 1/4" with a 1/4" bound edge to match the ribbon.
    The camera didnt catch the actual color of this beautifully pleated liner, it is more on the purple hue.

    I will post more possibly next week, it take quite a bit of time to photo, edit, d/l to a host, then actually post them here. In all I have a couple dozen I'm willing to sell, not all are stingy brims, I also have over 2 1/2" to 3" brim hats I'm letting go. Please be patient. Thanks for looking.

    Is the second hat a size 7? Would shipping to Switzerland or Australia be an option?

    If you're willing to pay actual postage besides the listed price of the hat, I can check into it.

    Going out on a limb here- do you have any Henschel "skully" or "generation" caps? They're sometimes called spitfire, not really a fishermans. Like these. Thanx & good luck with your hat sale!
