Welcome and GREAT FIND. This would be a post Stetson acquisition of Mallory (1946) and would date late 40's early 50's looking at it...looks in really good shape too!I just got lucky in an antiques mall yesterday and acquired this very fine fawn Mallory "Coast to Coast". Since 1823 label.
Pretty sure it was dead stock, shows no signs of wear, possibly display. Elusive 7 and 3/8 size, which fits me perfectly, as 7 1/4 sometimes is too small and 7 1/2 is usually to large or loose. Needed some blocking, which I did this morning.
Wasn't aware of the marque before, but the fine quality fur felt was obvious and I loved the high crown and 2.75 inch brim. Best of all, wife approved.
