Very likely on the rabbit fur. Langenberg/Beaver at one point pushed “100% Coney” (read ‘rabbit’) as a bit of marketing ploy. None the less they made great hats. And did a huge amount of “white label” work.I seem to be known as the Akubra guy so I can see how you would think that. This has a nice 3 1/4” brim and if I pop the crown out it is at least 6 1/2” tall. Has a label saying imported fur felt but, by feel, it’s at least a 100% rabbit. Has a softness that makes me think there could be some beaver as well. What’s even better is it fits my Long Oval head shape perfectly without any breaking in. I just hope the sweatband lasts. I got two hats at the same time from the same place and the other ones sweat band shrank, cracked then fell out after a year of hard use. That one is still in storage waiting for me to send it off to be redone.
Bob and Brent have added a lot of work on Bob’s Langenber/Beaver thread
