    Great looking hat Steve. Noteworthy for me as that's the widest ribbon I've ever seen on a men's hat. Just too damn cool.

    Now that is a wide ribbon. Great jacket, too.

    That was a find. What a great looking hat.

    Thanks Bowen. I basically just ran warm water through the stains and then gave it about a minute or two worth of swishing around on a sink of warm water. As you might imagine, it was very pliable after that. So I set the brim as best I could and set it on it's crown to dry for a couple of days. The stains are much less now, but still evident. I think they might be bleed from the wire in the sweat reeding.

    Thanks Michael, its very light and seems well made. The last seller believed this to be from late 40's to early 50's. Of course, I have no way to verify that. But is seems reasonable. ;)

    Thank you. It is a wide one alright. Any wider and you wouldn't see the hat.

    I really like the high, straight crown on that one.

    It is a nice place to be. We have 44 acres of open fields and wooded trails with a half mile of frontage on the Pawtuxet River in Coventry Rhode Island. It is my escape from the city!

  19. Very worthy preservation, home & all! As you probably know thousands of cannons were melted down around the time of WWI for scrap.
