As great recovery, Jared. That turned out to be a very splendid hat. The horsehair braid fits nicely on the wide brim.
This is a No. 1 Quality refurbishment by Bob at Black Sheep Hatworks. Original sweat was trashed. 6" open crown, 3.5" brim, about 3" after the curl. Haven't found a match in the Miller -Stockman catalogs for the model name. Very moldable felt with that great black tone that these old hats have. Bob mentioned he thinks is a mercury processed felt.
Couldn't find much on the store despite the University of North Texas having an online database of the Temple Daily Telegram. I did find several references to a McCelevey-Hartmann women's store, which I assume was the sister store to the men's shop. One of the two references pulled up to the men's store was this 1939 high school yearbook.
And here's the hat:
Bob saved the original ribbon
I asked for a red satin liner, and Bob picked out a darker shade of leather like the original.
I think I've settled on this crease, I also picked up a horse hair band at Golden Gate Western Wear.
