It's really hard to see any difference between the Chamois and Chevreau finishes. I would say the Chamois finish has slightly more fuzz (especially Hückel Weilheim Chamois 2). The felts of both finishes are very dense with slight gloss so possibly made of Wild Hare. The felts are not super pliable but the felts are of very high quality with a very soft hand.

I have three Hückel Weilheim Chevreau and two Hückel Weilheim Chamois in different shades of gray. They are all from the late 1950s very early 1960s. I also have a Hückel Weilheim Chevreau in a fantastic shade of green.

Hückel Weilheim "Chamois", 56cm probably late 1950s early 1960s.  This fantastic hat belongs to Stefan (steur) on the FL.  Really like the brim stitching.  As usual great all around quality.

P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Qualität" - Made Expressly for Eduard Pelger The Hague, missing paper label,measures 56cm, possibly early 1950s maybe earlier.  This great hat belongs to Stefan (seur) on the FL and here are his comments.
 
"P&C Habig homburg in brown. This one was part of a set of three with another Habig homburg in black (didn't buy that one) and the GB Borsalino fu Lazzaro homburg (posted earlier). According to the vendor part of the same auction. Makes sense. The black one was from 1952 and the GB Borsalino is from 1935. My guess is that this one is in between (it's lost its label); forties to early fifties.
Size 56, brim at 6cm and crown 10cm at the pinch. Unlined with a cloth crown patch. This is the "before" shoot. Most of the stains on the ribbon came out. Made expressly for Eduard Pelger, The Hague, which is still in business today. Fits me like a custom."
