Lee Adventure, bought last night for $8.77 seller's asking price because the hat needs cleaning and he didn't know how and didn't want to ruin it.

Late 1940's Dobbs with the rarely seen black sweatband. Has 2 3/4 inch bound brim. The hatbox is original to the hat. The seller said the hat appeared never worn, and that this was the nicest felt of any hat he had ever come across.
Seller was/is a member of the forum. He should probably spend some more time reading the books in his library so he can have a come to Jesus moment.

That is a very nice hat. Nice get, Mike.

Another Geo. W Alexander hat that's about to ship to me. Both of these 2 hats look about the same age, offhand, but I can't guess a date til I have them in hand. This hat is associated with the famous rodeo star Hub Hubbell.
