This long hair Aetna cowboy hat dates from the early 1930s or so. It has a high crown, wide, kettle curled brim and great graphics. But what makes it really unusual is the color. How about that wild turquoise color?!
The real deal- a big ’30s Dobbs western sold by Desmond’s of California. No interest when I sold this one- ended up losing money on it. Everyone wants a “Stetson” and are willing to pay big for the brand name. People will pay big for Dobbs fedoras, but they just didn’t become iconic in the western market in the same way.
