    Thank you! It bears some scars from battling hoards of moths, but it'll live to see another day. I think I'll actually wear this one tomorrow, lol

    Wondering if this could be pre '70's?
    The original price seems expensive.
    Luckily I got it for a song, skipped the dance.

    I was hoping 40s but after receiving the hat and seeing this sizing tag behind the sweat, due to the words being below the numbers as opposed to above them, also block depth listed, I estimate this to be 50s. Sweatband conditioned with and drank up a ton of Lexol and in addition to being 100% in tact with no rips or tears, is now soft, supple and flexible. Also managed to stretch it after a naptha soak, from 7 to 7 1/8 and it now fits perfectly. Unfortunately the naptha soak did not remove the ribbon stain on the left side but other than that this hat is in excellent condition and I am enjoying it thoroughly with original center dent and pinches. Thanks for viewing.

    Pleasure is mine. You very often sneak in some really great hats.
