"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.

Corporal Lorenz Jungwirth
born 1911 Waging
22/07/1941, 30J. Russia


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.

If it was my size I would have probably had a heart attack when it arrived! :) The velour finish is beyond description. Yes it is amazing the info you can find on the Net. Hope all is well with you!

Probably early 1950s (after JHS was nationalized as TONAK) like new condition Hückel Zypher Seal Velour. It is an amazing hat but it appears the brim was cut to a smaller size. Hard to believe someone would do such a thing. :( The ribbon/bow, liner and sweatband work are fantastic. It was imported by Saltz's of Washington, DC which is added bonus since I live in the area.

Fritz Hückel Hutmacher Zephyr Seal Velour probably mid to late 50s and out of Weilheim, Bavaria. This doesn't match the amazing velour finishes as pre 1940 Hückels but the overall quality is super high (unfortunately some moth damage).

Johann Hückel´s Söhne Super Sport Trachten style hat. This is one is old and very rare. The first I ever saw of Trachten style from JHS. I didn't bid on it because of the small size and high starting price but it is surely worth posting. It has to be at least 1930s maybe older.

This beautiful Hückel Seal Zephyr Velour had it's brim hacked to about 1 3/4 inches. Decided to have some brim binding added so now it's 2 1/8 inches.
