This is my latest Czech find. There are 20 hats (Brüder Böhm, J.Hückel´s Söhne, TONAK, Janyška) and 4 hat holders (Anton Peschel Neutitschein, Brüder Böhm, Janyška). All of the hats are NOS open crown and range from the later 1930s to late 1950s. Including a couple rare Brüder Böhm Soft Felt Wool hats and a Brüder Böhm hat holder.

TONAK Nový Jičín "Lestand", size 58cm, NOS condition with mothing, probably later 1950s (former JHS main factory). The crown is 5 1/2 inches open with a 2 3/8 inch brim. The felt is stiff but can be hand formed with steam. I am sure this by design so could be color finish related. This one is from my latest Czech find.

Tonak "Jubilant", size 59cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 3/8 inches, NOS condition, 1959. Made for 160 Year Anniversary but 145 years of it was JHS. :) This hat has a really great form (looks late 1930s) for later hat. The felt is fantastic and easily dry creases. This one is from my latest Czech find.

Tonak "Lestand", 57cm, Crown Open 5 inches, Brim 2 3/8 inches, NOS condition, probably late 1950s. The felt is of high quality (smooth finish) and dry creases easily. I think it has a very nice overall form plus a stylish bow. This one is from my May 2016 Czech find.

Tonak "Efekt?", 60cm, Crown Open 5 inches, Brim 2 5/8 inches, NOS condition, late 1940s early 1950s. The felt is of high quality and easily takes a dry crease. Also a very nice overall form.

Interesting in this case Tonak choose 1869 and not 1799. The 1869 date was when JHS became a public company. This change might have been due to trademark issues.

Yet "150 let (years)" is based on 1799 to 1949. Also the Sweatband is made of a canvas like material.
