Resistol Double X cowboy hat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281693651303
This vintage hat was made by Resistol in the 1950s. It is rare to come across these early Resistol westerns, and rare to find cowboy hats like this with a bound brim. As you can see from the fade line, it originally had a mid-with ribbon, much wider than usually found on westerns of this era. It has the early Resistol Western liner (Before westerns became Resistol’s bread and butter) and a brown leather sweatband. It was originally sold by Wolf Brothers of Omaha, Nebraska. It is a size 7-1/4.
