Wegener Biber made for Wilhelm Maushard, Schopfheim, West Germany, 59cm, very good condition, probably late 1950s. A German hat shop model with no maker marks. I assume it has some Beaver (Biber) content based on the name. Unique bow design and very nice felt finish / color. I am fairly certain this hat was made by Wegener because of the use of the "Biber" name, bow design (see "Seal" below) and construction.

R.& M. Wegener, measures 58.5cm, crown 6 inches open, brim 2 1/2 inches, non reed sweatband, 1920s maybe older. This is the first pre WWII Wegener I have encountered, after looking for a long time, so a rare find. All the original parts are in place except for the sweatband ribbon, although the bow looks original. What is interesting is the crown tip patch is off center. This could be why the patched survived. There is a paper label behind the sweatband but I do not want to take a chance damaging the sweatband.
