    Good get, HJ. Just when you think never. Most unusual wth those dimensions and no brim binding. Crown on mine is 5 3/4" but the brim is the same, typical of OR's but no designation. Looks clean. Congratulations.

    Thanks! I've felt behind the sweat & haven't found any tags but haven't worked up the nerve yet to roll out the sweat.

    Good get, Jack. I like the little wagon, too.

    Nice. I had one spotted a few weeks back but the $$$ went way over my budget. Enjoy the 100.

    That's a chuckwagon. I had to draw that to scale, then build it from scratch for an engineering class. Did you have to do anything like that? It's a little worse for the wear after all these yrs. My son played with it some growing up. Lost the drawings yrs ago.

    If you're just starting your collection when it comes to vintage get the best you can get. Fewer hats often means a better collection. Mix in a custom or two. No need to own a bunch of average auction hats. For one thing you'll never get your money back out of them.

    Congrats on the '100' Jack! A beauty...

    In all the things I have collected over the years I eventually get around to this idea, but it takes a long and winding road to get there.

    Not anything like that. Spent a lot of time in the machine shop making simple parts. That and sitting at drafting boards until I was seeing double.

    Yes, Jack, I'm trying. I have a couple of custom's in the queue but hoping to snag a Stratoliner and a 100 worth the price. I know I'll never get rich but I don't want to start out in the hole either. I did talk to a couple of knowledgeable folks here and they suggested a good price, so used that as my base and the one I was looking at went over that budget so i had to pass on it. The hunt continues :) Thanks for the reply, I'll keep your advice in mind. I can see how it would be easy to have a house full of hats that are of very low value, monetarily or otherwise!

    What a beautiful hat! Congratulations! I'll add my appreciation for the chuck wagon also.

    Incredible Jack. The long oval with a 7 5/8 is a real find. Does it feel as nice as it looks?

    Thanks Mike! It's soft & the felt feels pretty good. The fit is exceptional. I'm proud to have it.

    Ok, for the life of me I can't find the 'maple leaf' and the 'stars embossed'. What am I missing? I'm really trying to find one of these in 6 7/8, and trying to understand the various eras of the One Hundred.
