    My only cowboy hat. It's a Nutria. 1930's... possibly older. The sweat was replaced at some point .
    Nice hat in pretty good condition for it's age.

    Thanks, Bowen. It has a 3 1/2 brim. May have had a 3 ply originally but it had a thin leather belt type hat band when I got it. It had a wide sweat stain that I used the wide band to cover and it was close to the binding color.

    It says, " Asepto Leather Insured. I remember looking up " Asepto" when I got the hat. They went out of business in the 1930's IIRC.

    Yes I do not have a black hat. Lots of tan. It is unbelievably soft , was very pleased the brim was OR size. The brim is also masterfully shaped, would like a bit more upturn . Sold a nutria a while back as it was 1/4. The vintage fit perfect in 3/8 as they shrink a bit over the years. So the question I have is what the year might be, and if any one knows anything about Veta`s Store in Torrington Wyoming. A very historical junction with Fort Laramie, the wagon trails and gold rush for example.
