What a fantastic find, Brent. I wasn't even aware of this kind of hat by Mallory.Mallory roll-up fedora complete with cardboard tube w/cap. The unlined hat is very light and the in-reeded sweatband is soft and supple. This is some of the lightest felt I’ve handled. The raw edge brim is 2 ⅝” wide and the open crown measures appropriately 5 ⅜ inches. The felt is easily (too easily?) shaped. The size is 6 ⅞ and I suspect the hat is from the 1940s (the crown print has the 1823 date).

This hat is way too small for me so feel free to send me a PM if you’re interested. It’s going on eBay in a day or two.
