    Giving you guys first crack at this before it's off to ebay.

    Vintage Stetson Whippet size 7 1/2
    Not sure of the date on this one. I assume 50's? the price was $10.95 if that helps. No info/reorder sticker inside
    Crown 5 1/2" open, about 5" as shaped
    Brim-2 1/2"

    $550 is no longer available as this is an active ebay listing!

    The bad- There is a fair amount of greening of the gold in the liner logo. the liner has some slight yellowing and a bit of color transfer from the sweatband.
    There is s smudge on the underside of the brim near the sweatband. I've brushed it with some steam, didn't change it so I've left it alone and it is a very small, very slight blemish. As minor as these things are, it is not a perfect hat so I wouldn't represent it as such and this also reflects in the price.
    NOT including the box you may see in some of the pics!

    The good-the felt is excellent, easily shaped and responds well to steam. The crown ribbon and brim binding are like new. As is the sweatband. This hat has not shrunk over the years, it is a solid 7 1/2

    you can see the smudge on the right just at the shadow.

    And this larger size could easily go higher.

    The only way I could afford this currently is if I turned around and sold it on ebay. I don't consider that an option for me. I would feel guilty about it...

    Still available, I will be putting it on ebay probably Wednesday this "buy it now" price will be gone and it sells for what it sells for. I'll post the listing here when that happens

    I really wish I could, Tommy. You're a true gent for offering such a nice Whippet here first.

    How about a swap for a nice deer rifle?

    I selfishly want it to go to auction just for the spectator sport action it'll be good for.

    I'm hoping for a new record.

    Thank you Fed and Red for the kind offers but, no! I'm in Pennsyltuckey now and went crazy loading up on artilary (and a child at my age scares the heck out of me!). The Glock is an especially nice offer but like Fruno, I'm curious to see what it goes for on the bay. I'm going to start it lower with no reserve so anything could happen. It could go for less than I think. Don't think it will set any records like that one the other week but should go respectable

    I saw a Stetson last week on ebay. The seller described it as a Whippet and it clearly wasn't. There's a Whippet frenzy going on! I hope you get $1200! Be sure and post the link here so we can bid it up (or just watch like the poor beggars we are/I am)!

    Just in case my trigger finger gets itchy once it is listed, how would you describe the colour? On my monitor it looks like a lighter brown/dark tan. Is that close to reality?

    Wow, I'm really now interested to see how this goes on eBay! I just like to wear hats and am not a collector, shocked to see a stetson go for those kind of prices! Looking forward to it!
