P. & C. Habig Wien, 58cm probably 1969. This one belongs to John / Moehawk on the FL. His comments:
"The crown is 5" open, the brim 2". The felt is substantial, at 145g total weight, but dense not thick. Finish is very nice. Condition is amazing, the only negative was a slightly dry sweatband that a bit of Lexol took care of. Overall quality is everything I had hoped for, meaning excellent.
The seller thought it was 50's, mayserwegener thought maybe a bit later. I will guess late 60's, wondering if the number 69 at the bottom of the paper tag is the year of production. I have a pretty good idea that if I'm wrong there is someone here that can give me a better number!
I might call this one The Blue 'Burg of Happiness."
