Absolutely outstanding Jim! I seem to remember one on Etsy recently, much lower looking crown though. Love the name in the liner, so cool.Mallory Ten "Commander." In looking around, I can find little information on this model. The Mallory MADness thread has an ad dating from 1945 showing the Commander, and @Richard Morgan has an unlined version. Since this one doesn't have the normal liner tip, there is no clue from the 1823/1817 designation. I cannot post a photo of the reorder tag; it's buried too deep into the sweatband stitching, but I believe the Union tag as a slanted "bug," which is the older variety. It was originally purchased at Mabley & Carew in Cincinnati, which was a department store that had a life from the turn of the 20th Century until the late 70s. I found this in a lot with several other hats labeled 7 1/8 and 7 1/4. Fortunately, a slight nudge of about a millimeter made this one a great fit.
