Is it pee-can or pe-caan?
Looks great either way!
Our European friends might not know what to think about us Americans and our guns. However, I’ve never seen someone handle a Colt 1873 SAA Peacemaker (are there more names?) and not fall in love. The feel, the sound, the balance...such a great revolver. I’ll take a first generation in 4 5/8” if you come across one that’s mint and cheap
Mint and Cheap.... Pick one.
I agree, Brent, particularly in these times. My own activity has been more quick in and out than it used to be so sometimes I think I must have just missed people. Both Ken and Doc seemed absent for a little while and I was becoming concerned.
Mint and cheap is a contradiction in terms. You can listen to some wheelguns spin and learn how to crack a safe.
I'm wearing a very nice late 40s early 50s Pilgrim today. I think the brand emerged then and came out of a Lee shop.
It's an extremely nice hat with great hand.
And that’s why I own Ubertis and Rugers.
I’ve exchanged some PMs with Panos, but his absence was unsettling. Max, like Ed and others, decreased their activity here when Tapatalk was removed. I completely agree with them that the experience here after Tapatalk was removed is nowhere near as enjoyable.
Tim, Thanks! By the mid 1920s JHS had 3 factory locations: Main Factory Neutitschein / Nový Jičín (became Tonak post WWII), Racibórz (in Czech Ratiboř, in German Ratibor)- today a part of Poland, Skoczów(in Czech Skočov)- today a part of Poland (became PolkaP post WWII).
Randy, Thank you! I am just about to post day 2.
J. Hückel´s Söhne were famous for Velour Soft Felt Hats but their Stiff Felt Hats were also very popular. This week I will feature J. Hückel´s Söhne Stiff Felt Hats.
J. Hückel'a Synove Vídeň (J. Hückel´s Söhne Wien) early 1900s. The felt is dense and has a very nice smooth finish. The weight is 149 grams. The crown has a lower profile with a wide flat brim. The brim curl is extremely tight. The liner is especially fantastic. Same with the textured sweatband.
The same crest design in German (upper right corner). From sole agent for U.K. British Colonies and the far East: H. Haymann, 17
J. Hückel´s Söhne won the Grand Prix Paris 1900.
J. Hückel´s Söhne used 1/4 Point Sizing for Stiff Felt Hats and Silk Top Hats. Notice the 5 3/4 Point Size / Weite (lower right corner).
Johann Hückel´s Söhne Neutitschein (today Nový Jičín) Factory early 1900s. Yesterday's employee group photo is from the same series of photos.
I’m not a fan of whip stitching, but I like a nice, old hat. That one sure is fine!
Steve, you add tons of validity to the Lounge. Nice posts. Nice hats. Great history.
Is/was the brim configuration of U.S. hats any differentthan the European bowlers that preceeded them?
Coming from New Zealand, where not even the police carry guns, I must admit that it’s hard for me to fathom. That said, it would have made a great addition to my poncho pics!
I was camping outside Yosemite National Park a couple summers ago and some very nice folks from Europe turned cold and aloof before packing up and moving on to camp elsewhere after noticing a gun in my hip. It was an eye opening experience for me. I was raised with firearms and grew up hunting and shooting. I’ve carried a handgun almost constantly for the last 30+ years. I just don’t even think about it. It’s like licking out a pair of socks; which handgun and holster does the day call for.
I can believe it. Several of my uncles are farmers. They had one rifle between them which was occasionally used for rabbits. So I’ve been rabbit shooting a couple of times, but other than that I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone with a gun in New Zealand. Obviously they’re around and there is a special division of the police that can carry guns in special circumstances, but in general you just never see them. It was culture shock for me to see police in Europe and Japan carrying!
