Eddy Brothers Cowboy Hat

Now on eBay! LINK

This vintage cowboy hat was made in the 1960s by Eddy brothers of California.  It is marked a 5X beaver quality.  The X system is, unfortunately entirely meaningless, as it differs wildly manufacturer to manufacturer, model to model and year to year.  It is marked “water repellent” and has a red liner.  The felt has stains, pen marks, a few small moth bites, and it looks like someone had a pin in the front of the crown.  It has a two cord band, a flat brim and a cattleman’s crease.

Size: 7-1/8
Brim Width: 3″
Band Width: 1/4″
Crown Height: 5-3/4″
