This vintage hat was made in the 1920s by the John B. Stetson Company of Philadelphia, PA from clear nutria felt with a “Boss Raw Edge” brim treatment for the Vic Hanny Co. of Phoenix, Arizona. The hat has a 4″ brim, a 1-1/4″ ribbon with a twisted knot and feathered trailing edge. The sweatband is marked LOT 6300, along with Reingold and Getz. There is a tag, which has been taped back together at some point, under the sweatband which reads,”Hat Satisfaction is a part of what you pay for herein buying a hat; there’s no extra charge for it. If you don’t get it bring back the hat; the money is on call. Vic Hanny Co.” The hat has six cattle brands branded into the felt.
This cowboy hat was made by Resistol as part of their old-west styled “Stagecoach” line. It was probably manufactured in the 1980s, and is made of high quality fur felt. It has a great 1920s style, with a wide, curled brim, and a tall crown. The hat has a buckled leather band, appropriate for the 1920s style.
