I've got a vintage hat from 1950 with BEAUTIFUL brown felt. (Much nicer / smoother / richer than it looks in a photo) Feels identical to the proper pre-1980 Herbert Johnsons I own - very stable, rich felt.

Anyway, I can reblock / refurbish this to a 57cm and put a proper ribbon on it for $200 plus postage.

Beautiful felt! What are the measurements on the brim?

Currently about 2 3/4 all around, but as it's a larger sized vintage hat, the reblock will easily come out to a Raiders sized brim at close to 3" front, 2 5/8 or so sides when blocked to 57cm.

I have reblocked the hat and it's looking GREAT, but before I assemble it, I'm wanting to make a sale. There will be latitude for people who need closer to a 56cm or 58cm if you measure either side of 57.

Price reduced to $160.
