    EDIT: Sold

    Howdy folks, for sale is my vintage Stetson "Bighorn" size 7 5/8.
    This is a 3x Stetson most likely from the 60's based on the stitched liner and box. Very soft felt. Please see pictures...

    Original inspection card
    Some light moth damage
    Clean leather sweatband & lining

    Yes, the box is included and it is in fantastic condition through & through. Hat could use a little cleaning, I've brushed it out. Message if interested!

    I think you might find your price is not in line with what we are used to paying for similar hats. No offense meant.

    No offense taken! I appreciate that- Im still learning pricing & quality aligning since there's so little to base it on. I am definitely accepting offers.

    I've just edited down the price to $300 with shipping included. Like I said, accepting offers. PM me if you wouldn't mind shedding some light on pricing. If you are interested by any means, let me know! thank you

    I’m a 7 5/8, and I keep a pretty close eye on the vintage market. I’m not a hat appraiser and I’m hesitant to give you a price, but these hats from the later 1960s and on just don’t bring the money that hats from the 1950s and earlier do. Good luck

  6. Jesse, welcome to the experts of the FL.

    In order for anyone interested as a collector to give due consideration to purchasing your hat you need to provide better pics of all the bug damage. That will go a long ways in a potential buyer establishing what it is worth to him/her, & paying you fairly.

    You say it may need some cleaning; to a collector it may need a lot of cleaning. I have been playing with contrast & am having trouble determining just what is dirt & what is shadow in the pics. The sweat & liner are very clean but the brim, I'm not so sure. Perhaps it's all from dirty hands & gloves? At $15 per gal x 3 for good Coleman fuel, plus filters & bucket with lid, a gas bath is not all that cheap. Plus the aggravation.

    Having said all that I'm a 7-5/8 & with better pics for clarification I might be open to making a good offer. I like that style of hat.
