I’ve seen them in old time pool halls & card parlors. When I was a kid there was a turtle spittoon in the barbershop but I never saw anyone use it.When I was a wee lad, even fancy establishments in big cities still had spittoons, which were more politely called cuspidors.
Thanks but in some lighting in photographs it looks dusty but I think it’s losing the black coloring & turning gray. On the underside of the brim is a worn spot from where my thumb used to go when I removed it. I don’t do that anymore.Yours looks much more pristine than mine.
