    I see this as a star logo that is on the sloppy side. These sweatbands shrink and stretch and make it hard to tell for sure. (did I understand your question correctly?)

    I was not singling you out for misinformation, sorry if I came off that way.

    Back to this question, from the ads other guys posted the $100 Stetson came out in ‘51. I believe we can nearly assume this also corresponds to the earliest date of the Stetson 100; more certainly the earliest possible date.

    Maybe some folks have more ads or hats with date stamps that make better indicators? More information is always better!

    I think this case was an accessory sold by Stetson & not specific to the "100". All the dimensions & the inserts are the same but no "100" badging & the white liner.

    You got me motivated...Stetson 100, Stars^2 and pre-plastic.

    A 6 5/8, hopefully the purists among us won’t be too up in arms that I took it downstairs to Ignacio to open up a little...I don’t know that there are any heads that small wearing hats; now the hat sees the sun a little more!


    PS I added the original hat box.

    Dang ... you're killing me here ... these would all fit me (maybe not on a windy day). You are a lucky man to own one, but three? Wow!
