    Such a pretty hat. I’m completely shocked that you went with a diamond: so unlike you. :)
    Why change perfection?

    I was the only other bidder. Someone got a nice hat super cheap.

    I did, Brent. But the darned site charged my credit card and isn't registering it as paid. I don't know how to call them and resolve the issue.

    What were you doing, bidding on a size 7? Were you going to wear it on your pinkie?

    I was thinking I’d keep it for a future trade deal with Stefan if he came across any more 7 5/8s. Even with that shallow bit of mothing it’s a pretty hat.

    You got a great deal on this. I really thought it was going to go a lot higher.

    I’ve pounced a few hats. I’ve even tried to make a Western dress-weight thin (no dice). If that’s the only divot in the felt I don’t know I’d do much as it’s not going to be noticeable. Do make sure all the moth larvae are dead; it’s probably old damage but you never know.

    Ah. I'll get it distressed, then.
    Doubt the larvae could survive a white gas bath, could they?

    I freeze them, but if it’s submerged in white gas I’d think that would do it.

    If I put a hat in the freezer, my wife would throw me in with it.

    A solid 24 hours should do it. We used to do that with any new box of cigars, too, just to keep those darn tobacco beetles from hatching and ruining some good stogies.

    Well, I got my Dobbs One Hundred. The felt is even softer than the Dobbs Fifty's. Best felt I've had in my hands[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you for the appetizer Max. It only whets the appetite for a full on main course complete with as much detail as humanly possible. We’re a very hungry bunch at this Diner!!!

    ^^^look forward to it. Just pretend it’s some super elaborate dental procedure that you are presenting at an annual dental convention with countless peer reviewers. The price of fame.
    No pressure!!
