    I have one hat in particular that is very unique, one I haven't seen before. This got me wondering who else here has a once in a lifetime never before seen hat? I have a relatively small collection compared to a lot you guys here, so I know I can't be the only one.

    Here is mine,

    Stetson "Superior Quality Boater" The Longmont.

    When I purchased this, I was fairly new to hats and didn't realize how rare this was. Now, 3 years later, this is still the only "Superior Quality" Stetson I have seen.

    Excellent thread idea, and a perfect hat to start it off - your boater is one of those unique hats that has had me stumped since first seeing it.

    My contributions are: '3X Kettle Finish Boss Raw Edge', Schoble 'Spinner', and Dobbs 'Duvay'.

    I've never seen a Stetson like it, newer ribbon or not.

    That's fascinating. Beautiful condition on some of those. Somebody needs to set up a hat museum complete with the catalogs.

    We've had some discussion on this hat previously, some think it may be a woman's hat. I think it may have been part of a uniform for a doorman, or something along those lines.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Art Fawcett made this one for me from an old, unfinished hat body that I've had for years. Thick, soft, slightly furry black felt with a pale lavender band.
