Vintage Reverse Pencil Curl Western?

Hello Everyone,

Long time Hat guy, first time poster.

I recently acquired a vintage Miller Bro's hat and it isn't like any hats I have seen before. It has what I would call (for lack of a better term), a reverse pencil curl brim. Unlike most pencil curl hats I have seen, it is also, a curved and turned brim and not a flat brim like most pencil curl brims I have found.

Is there an era where this was a popular style, or is it an odball? I really love this hat and just wanted to see if I could find any info on this style because while I have collected and enjoyed hats for years, I have never really geeked out on them and don't know much. I would love to see any similar hats if any members have one.


Thanks in advance, Lance.
