Late 1940's Stetson Sovereign, labeled Stetson Beaver Twenty. 2 3/4 inch raw brim and 5 3/4 inch open crown. The liner has the seam on the side instead of the rear, which some say is a sign of a late 40's Stetson. I also believe the Stetson Beaver Twenty phrase is late 40's. Hat just arrived today. Just love these older Sovereigns and the felt on them.

PS- I'm not claiming that all late 40's Sovereigns have the liner seam on the side or the phrase Stetson Beaver Twenty, but that where these do occur, they are signs of a late 40's hat, or so goes the theory or belief.

Nice hat for sure !! First time I've seen a Mid Oval...
* I will readily admit there's lots about these old hats for me to learn
Thanks, I really like the higher crown and the dress weight felt.
It does seem that mid oval is not that common, and I was curious to how it would fit. I’m a long oval, so it’s a bit snug in the front, but is stretching out with time.
