Now on eBay! LINK

This vintage fedora was made in the 1940s by Stetson.  It is their 7X Clear Beaver Quality. Pure, undyed beaver, with a mode edge.  When it was new, this hat would have cost $50, a lot of money at the time.  It has a reeded sweatband, with the 1940s version of the Stetson Crest.  The sweatband is deeply blind embossed “mode-edge”.  The hat was originally sold by Charles of Atlantic City, located at 1627-29 Boardwalk.  There is a moth bite on the brim at the reed seam, and some staining on the wind string button.  The crown has a diamond crease.  The liner is Rayon Satin of Celanese yarn.
