"A bit of wear on this one although the felt appears intact. Seems to have shrunken a bit and the unmarked 2-1/4" wide sweatband is held in only at the back seam. Would be about a size 7 as it fits like a 7-1/8 without the sweatband."

1930s or older gray Hückel Superior Crystall Velour, size 54cm. This velour is a higher grade than my black Hückel Seal Velour and similar to my black Hückel Sigma Velour. It has a similar sweatband and hanging cord as my other two Hückel Superiors (not velours) and is in very good condition. The bow work is unique and it doesn't have a country of origin.
I found some information on Lorenz Jungwirth of Waging a. See, Bavaria who was the owner of the hat.
The first Waging team of TSV in 1932 from left: Louis Penninger, Franz Waldherr, Josef Bauer, Lorenz Jungwirth, Dusi Fischer, Franz (Pauli) Waldherr, Hans Kronbichler; Josef Krieger, Hans Weth, Anton Schmid, Louis Feil
Died in WWII so this hat is definitely 1930s.

Amazing hat! too bad it is a size 54. Isn't it great that the internet provides us with so much imformation?! A few decades ago such research would habe been impossible.
