    Interesting to compare the cost and retail price changes from 1914 to 1922 in the fashion plate posts above. Top retail price of $20 in 1914 grew to $48 for the highest grade shown in the 1922 price list. The CPI calculator also shows a large inflation during that time span. Prices would settle quite a bit after the passage of another 8 years.
     
  2. Yes, everything is archival stored. PH neutral sleeves with European made paper, acid free backers.

    It will certainly outlast me by quite a few years...;)

  7. More Stetson fashion plates.......Spring 1924. Of note in addition to a Stetsonian in stiff and soft versions (also seen in 1922) we see the first referance I have found to the Stetson "Whippet"!! Made in soft felt with a 5 1/2 inch crown and a 2 1/2 inch RAW edge!!!
