Stetson One Hundred presentation case

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271577537059
In the 1950s and 1960s, Stetson’s top of the line hat was the Stetson 100, which cost a whopping hundred dollars at the time. For that money you got a hand crafted pure beaver Stetson hat in a leather presentation suitcase. This is one of those cases, in the smaller Open Road / Fedora size, as opposed to the larger cowboy hat size.
