Brüder Böhm "Luxor", size 56cm, pre 1940. It's made of wool or has a large amount of wool content. It's from a Czech source. I believe my Brüder Böhm Velour is the only other pre 1940 soft felt so a rare find.

Props to Robert (RLK) for the meaning of "Decateered".

Brüder Böhm, Hat Liner Print Plates, probably from the Nový Jičín (Neutitschein) factory.

I purchased a collection of old (probably 1930s and older) hat liner print plates (82 pieces) from the Czech Republic. They were found near Štramberk which is a short distance from Nový Jičín (Neutitschein) where Johann Hückel´s Söhne, Anton Peschel and Brüder Böhm were located.

Brüder Böhm Neutitschein Die Stamps, probably 1920s. I received another batch (42) of Die Stamps from the Czech Republic about 2 weeks ago but most are not hat company related (still amazing though). These BB Die Stamps are small so might have been used for paper labels.

Brüder Böhm Factory in Vienna from the late 1940s early 1950s. I received these rare photos from Jonathan the grandson of Victor Böhm owner and chief inventor at Brüder Böhm Wien, Neutitschein / Novy Jicin. Here is a brief overview by Jonathan followed by the photos + his comments.

"The address of the Brüder Böhm factory in Vienna was Schottenfeldgasse 30, in Vienna's 7th district (or VII. Bezirk, called Neubau). Its location on Schottenfeldgasse was the block bounded by Seidengasse, Zieglergasse, and Lindengasse. The plant was in operation from its construction in 1862 to the 1960s. It was demolished in the 1970s, and there is now an apartment complex on the site."

"Three exterior views of the factory. The structure shown in the third photo is clearly the central building visible in the older prints of the factory."

Ústřední Sociální Pojišťovny (Central Social Insurance Company) Identity Card (1926 - 1930).  This man (Franz Freissler) was employed by Brüder Böhm Hutfabriken (Hat Factories).  Notice Brüder Böhm still uses Neu-Titschein (German) and not Nový Jičín (Czech) post WWI Slavication. Also the passbook documentation is in both Czech and German.  I received this a short while ago.

Brüder Böhm "Luxor", 59cm, Wool, NOS condition, with Böhm Hat Holder and Paper Size Tag, probably late 1930s. Old Brüder Böhm Soft Felts are very rare finds. This is from my latest Czech find.

I think this might be a cloth based sweatband. The separation doesn't appear to be from stretching.

Brüder Böhm "Lido", 58cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 inches, very light weight 100g / 3.5oz, NOS condition with mothing, original Paper Size Tag, probably late 1930s. The felt finish is very smooth with a white (a slight hint of green) granite rock effect. It's on the stiffer side but will hand crease. There is a Hare on the logo so it could be fur felt but not really sure because of the processing. A very unique hat but probably not in its time and place. :) This is from my May 2016 Czech find.
