    Garrett, I have two with 1929 date stamps but they are from the same store. This one has the old Cell Label type so my guess is late 1920s maybe a bit later.

    Fantastic hat, Garret. Good to see more of it (and what I missed). I did notice that the label says 5 for size and the sweat has a 4 1/2 size tag. Both m Lodola as a felt colour and Nobelsca as a model are ones we've not seen before.

    Stefan, the 5 sizing might be more accurate as the fit is a tad loose on my size 7 noggin. Perhaps the 4 1/2 label was a factory worker mistake? In great shape for its age - guessing NOS.

    Garrett, One (out of 3) of mine from Max Eckard Berlin has a similar outside size label. The inside label is marked 5 1/2 and outside size label is a 6. Maybe they were applied by the German distributor or by Borsalino at final check.

    Maybe you guys can help me,
    I'm looking at a Borsalino Anello for $75 and don't know enough about them to know if I should pull the trigger or not. I tried looking them up on the board and on the google, but didn't really find anything.

    It looks like the crown has been opened up, and the brim will probably need reshaping too, but it's an almost OD Green color, which is something I've wanted to pick up for a while.

    Is the Anello worth getting or should I wait for something better to come along?

    Okay. Can't tell much from that. Can you get him/her to send more photos?
