That is to distinguish them. A nutria in Spanish is an otter in English, a Coypu in Spanish is a nutria in English.
A lima in Spanish is a lemon in English, a limón in Spanish is a lime in English. I still have a little trouble with that one:)

I think detachable sweatbands are unusual, right?
Hi Max, The Carter sweatbands are unusual and also help to date your Cavanagh. I got the following from The Hatted Professor:

One example of taped seams lasting longer than usual is on Carter Sweatbands, a patented design that Cavanagh used on hats in the late-1930s and early-1940s. These sweatbands were not sewn into the crown of the hat, but instead were buttoned in. Buttons were sewn to the crown, and the reed tape of the sweatband had corresponding buttonholes to attach it to the hat. This would make the sweatband much easier to replace, but the idea must have sounded better in practice, because it was only used during the late-1930s and early-1940s

In English, a lima is a bean, in Spanish, it's a city in Peru.

A Western MacLachlan Golden Beaver Hundred. I just bought it, and haven't picked it up in Texas, but I think the felt is more "Westerny" than that of my other Mac 100. It is also very dirty on top. If It can't be cleaned well, I will ask Ignacio to reverse the felt when he enlarges it. It is a 6 5/8 but there is plenty of brim to work with
