We are friends and have discussed hats a lot here and via email. I can't swear to it, but I think most of his hats were in that 5-3/4" range.
I notice a lot 20 and 30s hats are 5 3/4”, it appears to be standard for that period

You might be surprised at the diverse styles back then. Tall crowns on some with stingy (narrow brims). Tall crown with wide brim is seen more in the 40s and 50s, at least in my limited experience.

Standard Quality, maybe. Four pre 40’s. One 5 3/4 crown, one 5 3/8 and two 5 1/2. Two 2 1/4 brims and two 2 1/2.
