    Could the resistol I purchased be a
    “herdsman” if not a San Antonio?

    Resistol made a lot of similar thin ribbons under various names (San Antonio, Dallas, etc.). I have found that, unless the name is included in the hat or you can match up block numbers and dimensions with one that does, it's fruitless to try to determine. Sometimes you can come close if you find a pic in an old catalog. You have a very nice hat.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

  3. There is one on eBay now and it looks similar (but is also newer I think). Like Fruno said, unless you have the tag or an imprint on the sweat it is really difficult to know. Great hat BTW!

    Just received this hat in the mail today. Resistol "Plains". Aprox 5.5" Open Crown and a 3" Brim. I don't know how old this would be maybe I can get some help with that. No Byer-Rolnick on the liner. Brown Sweat and Red liner dictate age? hat #79 Resistol Plains.jpg

    Nice hat! My best guess is late 50s. Can you get a pic of the reorder sticker? That would help confirm my guess.

    It was way too small for me and I was still tempted.

    Great score! Congratulations Cornshucker! I'd say late fifties, based on the liner, sweat, and skinny ribbon.

    Barrel racers used to wear those wild colored westerns. A friend once bought a powder blue western hat. I told him I wouldn't be seen with him wearing a girl's hat!
