    This was either a Stetson Playboy Air-Lite or A Bantam late 30s
    Mike Miller at North West Hats brought it back to life about 7 years ago and he made his past version of it which he called the Seabass a very simple hat with feather weight felt
    Ribbon is original
    I can’t make out the inner crown stamp any input is appreciated maybe Alan might have knowledge

    I can make out that it says DOBBS in larger letters across the top. Could it be a Cross Country?
     

  8. Great hats as usual, Eric! Can you explain how you brush your hats with Coleman white gas? I’m familiar with the dunk method, but I’m intrigued by the brushing.

    Cheers,
    Brent

  11. At first I thought that too but now I'm not sure it says DOBBS. This is all I can pull out. Maybe this will help someone to recognize it.

    7F5BFA09-301E-465A-8E4B-8D7F98E4CA01.jpeg A double take Knox Twenty WestLite that I got about 3 weeks ago to replace the one I sold 3 months ago.
    This’n is in better condition except for 3 moth divots needing repair underneath. C33926F3-86F2-4298-9C66-DB85CB0B8921.jpeg 3B7645B2-2C63-4738-B65B-756E8324EC61.jpeg 4B3A2154-B919-47E5-ABE9-D4A23F1A1121.jpeg D9BEBE7F-9AD9-43BD-B29D-8FE29686EBC7.jpeg

    This one has the Knox logo on the wind button. Don’t know if it’s original to the hat...but I like it.

    HI Hurricane
    You are correct I forgot and lost my before pics & notes as i recall it was Dobbs answer to the Early Playboys from late 30s
    I think Alan advised me to seek these out as well when i was searching out the Air-Lite I know Alan had a excellent example
    I found it without the sweat but remember the Dobbs stamp was not faded as much
    Thanks for your input Now if i can find out what it was called

    Here is what my Dobbs Cross Country logo looks like.

    but I think they changed it to a rounded Dobbs portion on later incarnations
