Here is my latest Knox..a Knox 20......a newer one.......probably one of the last produced....but still selling for its $20. Really cool RED lining.....late 60's early 70's?? Not sure when they stopped making these...or selling them for twenty dollars.

Based on some of my hats that has the lines and look of a 60s slim brim. How is the felt easy to mould, stiff or claylike? It has a lot going for it, stitched in liner (not glued), wind trolley. Overall a nice Knox. Wear it in style!

It is only slightly stiff, and it is easy to shape the crown. Seams to really have been seldom if ever worn...
I am pleased to have this, fit is perfect and it is really quite comfortable to wear....really soft great feeling sweatband.....

I forgot to add this E-BAY acquisition from some time ago, which was listed by a fellow lounger.....second hat I have purchased from him. It has had the sweat professionally replaced. It has a felted edge (I think Knox called them a Custom Edge) and an earlier liner that has no "protector". SO....I would guess early 50's, maybe late 40's.
Really nice soft moldable felt.......this is a dry bash! It does have some foxing in the liner.......I Am debating whether to go to the bother to remove and soak it.....I am pleased to have found this one.

Knox Campaign hat, 1916

View attachment 63198
This is a Union Officer's beaver fur hat made by Knox. It has a cloth eagle insignia on the crown front & a Civil War Michigan button on a cockade with a hat feather.

This is an authentic Civil War beaver fur hat also possibly made by Knox, but for the missing tip liner. The insignia & the number 2 on the crown front are metal on cloth, backed by metal. Handwritten inside is "1830" but it is unknown if that could be a date?
