    Nice catch. Try being a 61 or 62 (me) and finding vintage anything. They’re out there, but patience, deep pockets, luck, and low expectations are all required.

    Very cool, Garrett. The wider ribbon appears to be a mourning band, but it's strange that it sits underneath the ribbon.

    Nice one, Erik. I'm unsure of the numbers reflect the manufacturing date, but it is a later hat. The liner and size tag are later models.

    Also Dunn & Co. sourced their Soft and Stiff Felt Hats. I have no idea the source of this Stiff Felt.

    Anton Peschel Neutitschein, 57 cm, 140 grams, possibly later 1920s. This is the only (and one other on FL) complete branded APN Stiff or Soft Felt Hat I have so a very rare find. The felt is very similar to JHS Stiff Felts but that makes sense because they were very close neighbors. I really like the dimensions + form and it actually fits so that is an added bonus.

    Everything about that Peschel is to like, Steve. I particularly like the liner and logo. Nice find.

    Thanks, Steve. It really is a special find especially when I can tie so much history into it.

    Mayser "Stella Steif Federlicht / Stiff Feather Light" made for Huthase / Hat Hare, 58cm, 155 grams, possible 1930s. I was lucky because I noticed there was a lot of padding behind the sweatband. Also figured it was made by a high quality company which also turned out to be correct. This is a really fantastic Fur Felt (Haar.filz) Stiff Felt made by Mayser Ulm. I really like the dimension and form. The sweatband leather is especially nice and the fit is perfect. Huthase had stores in Dresden, Chemnitz, and Leipzig.
