    Yes....the beginnings of what would soon to be the Stetson 100 (10X).....their BEST top of the line, supposed to be 100 percent beaver......(though there is still some debate about that), little debate about the high quality and finish of those (and the 7X's).

    The young lady looks like she's seen something that, as we say today, "You can't unsee."

    Further research indicates these are from right around 1920 and no later than about 1925.
    I DO still have a lot of these left. So...if you want one........PM me.
    Also, to those whom I have sent a card...PLEASE let me know if it arrived safely.......
    Best,

    Back at it......Stetson counter card....probably mid 20's when they were playing with the prices....though could be 30's when they had a short lived drop in prices only to raise them again.

    Quick note.....lets keep this thread "internet scrounge/troll free" and limit posts to ads we own. I do not mean to offend anyone but We could load it up quick with undocumented internet images or reproductions. I know I spend a lot of money and time collecting and documenting my collection. Images from museum collections are fine......
    Thanks,
    M
