Medium weight felt that is easily dry creased. Wider Whippet style brim binding and 2 ½” brim. The open crown is about 5 ⅜ inches. I’d guess this is a mid to late 1950s hat, but that’s just a guess. The size is 7 US.

Very nice Marathon, Brent. I don’t see too many in this whippet styling. Which is kind of surprising. If I were to take a guess.. it might be this style was at the upper end of Penneys offerings and they did not sell as many in that range as other higher end stores would have. Very clean hat.
