  1. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Jota" "Seal Velour", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 2nd hat from my recent 9 hat find. The Velour is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable. The sweatband is textured and is very soft. The tip patch is in mint condition and the hat appears to have been seldom worn. This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Open Crown
  2. Echter Borsalino "Qualità Superiore" "Amiata" "C. Nero" "Gorasti", Size Tag Missing / measures 58cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the first hat of a 9 hat find that took 2 1/2 months to arrive from Germany. The Smooth Finish Felt is of a lighter weight and easily dry creases. There is non elastic Wind Cord which is the type you find in this time period and prior. The gray sweatband has a specialty finish I do not believe I have encountered before. This hat was most likely sold in Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Open Crown Natural Light
  3. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Sigma" "Seal Velour", 57 cm possibly early to mid 1930s and made for the Japanese market. A thank you to Wayne of the FL saving the auction photos.
  4. Echter Borsilino "Qualità Superiore", French Point 5 1/2, possibly late 1930s early 1940s. Unfortunately the Borsalino Paper Label is missing but the separate Size Stamp is present. The Felt Finish is similar to Velour Soleil so shows a high amount of gloss and is very pliable so easily dry creases. There is a mix of colors (you can see better in the Open Crown photos) that from a distance looks Stone Gray like. The Form and Dimensions fit the time period and place. This is a great start to 2021. Paper Label missing but it has the separate Size stamp. Specialhaus Globus Stamp Open Crown Natural Light
  5. Wegener "Seal", 55 cm possibly later 1950s. This belongs to Stefan on the FL.
  6. Borchert Berlin W., 58 cm, Date Stamped 1. Dez. 1951. The Smooth Finish Black Felt easily dry creases and has fine hand. Great Form with mid width Band, Brim Binding plus Wind Cord. In my opinion the Borchert Berlin W. logo is definitely a standout. There is no other company mark but I certain the hat was sourced by Borchert Berlin W.. I have two other Borchert Berlin W. Soft Felts from the same time period and appear to be made by the same source. Open Crown Natural Light
  7. P. & C. Habig Wien "Export Qualität", production year 1953. Not mine but a great Homburg + high quality (although not a large format) auction photos so decided to post. Date Stamped Oktober 27, 1953.
  8. Anton Peschel Neutitschein "The Superbum Superior" "E. Steinhard & Co. Czechoslovakia" possibly early 1930s. This fantastic Velour belongs to Wayne on the FL. By the way a "Superbum" is a Succulent plant from Mexico. https://worldofsucculents.com/graptopetalum-superbum-beautiful-graptopetalum/
  9. S. J. Fraenkel Wien, "Arola", 58 cm possibly late 1950s. This is my first S. J. Fraenkel Wien Homburg Hat find in my size range. The felt is of a heavier weight but still dry creases and has a soft hand. The components and workmanship are of excellent quality. This Homburg Hat was made specially for Thom. Janout Linz Hat Sales K.G.. Back in 2018 I fond a catalog from Thom. Janout, Hat Manufacturer Upper Austria, Linz, Austria (1924) so they stopped producing hats possibly after WWII.

  11. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Alpha", French Point 5 1/2, possibly early to mid 1930s. This hat belongs to Wayne on the FL.
  12. Wegener "Carrera" "Biber", 56 cm possibly late 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL.
  13. Stetson - Mayser "Premier" "Lancer", 57 cm possibly early 1960s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description of the hat. "Bronze colour. Made under license in Germany. Size 57 with the overwelt brim at 5,5cm and the crown at 10cm. It's not my size really, but this is a very attractive colour."
  14. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Platin", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description of the hat. "Velour Backbow in green (yes, green;)). Size 56 with the raw edge brim at 5,5cm and the crown at 10cm at the center dent, Weighs 114 grams. All pre-war Hückel velour hats are exceptional and I've handled a few, but this one is the best one yet. As a testimony to its quality: it made me buy a deep green hat without hesitation and it landed me in the Adolf Hitlerstrasse of all places. Wait, what? Let me explain. The hat was sold by Hut-Trescher of Freiburg and in the years 1937 until the end of WWII one of their shops was located in the Adolf Hitlerstrasse. And it says so on the sweatband. So it's quite easy to date: late thirties or maybe early forties. Save for the imprint on the liner flaking off, the hat is in excellent shape."
  15. Franz Gober München "Bayerland" "Alba", French Point 5 possibly 1930s late 1920s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "Black Velour, Size 57 (but has shrunk somewhat) with the brim at 7cm and the crown 11cm at the center dent. This is a substantial hat in every way and that won me over. Weighs 147 grams."
  16. A. Peschel Dinkelsbühl "K", 56 cm possibly mid 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "Peschel in dark brown. Size 56 with the bound brim at 6,5cm and the crown at 10,5cm at the center dent. Label only says quality "K" and not much else. I love these Peschel hats, because they always have a great hand to the felt and this one is no exception."
  17. Wegener "Extra", 58 cm possibly mid to later 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "Wegener Extra unlined in the colour Sylt. Size 58 with the bound brim at 7cm and the crown at 11cm at the center dent. Weighs 114 grams. I don't see that many unlined hats and certainly not by Wegener. The colours are great as well with the contrasting ribbon and brim binding, so I picked it up, even if it isn't my size. Sold by Hut Wagner, Bahnhofstrasse 21, Limburg."
  18. Echter Rockel Velour, 56 cm, possibly late 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "ark grey with some distinct lilac tones to it. Very cool colour which is why it had to come. No label in this one unfortunately, but the liner was glued, so I'm guessing mid to late sixties. Bound brim at 6cm and crown at 11cm at the center dent. Rockel did know how to do velour and this one shows it. Weighs 110 grams."
  19. Getes, Georg Teufel & Sohn, Tuttlingen "Meisterklasse" "Soleil", 58 cm possibly mid to late 1950s. The Light Gray Soleil Velour shows a nice gloss. This hat is machine formed but has nice dimensions + style. Natural Light
  20. Windsor, 58 cm, possibly late 1950s. The black felt has a soft hand and easily dry creases. I am still not sure what hat company made the Windsor mark. Open Crown Natural Light
  21. Getes, Georg Teufel & Sohn, Tuttlingen, "Antilope", 58 cm possibly late 1950s early 1960s. This hat is machine formed but has nice dimensions + style. I have never encounter Georg Teufel (&) Sohn, Tuttlingen so I will have to see if I can find any information. They don't come up on any of my lists. There is another Getes in this find. Natural Light

  23. Rockel "Jupiter", 58 cm possibly mid to late 1950s. The Chamois like felt is fantastic (color, finish, hand) and easily dry creases. Also really like the form and mid width band / ribbon. Unfortunately the liner is missing so I might look for a replacement. This is the third hat from my recent seven hat find. Open Crown Natural Light
  24. Rockel "Velourette", 58 cm possibly late 1950s. The finish is Chamois like so I would be interesting to know why Rockel chose the "Velourette" name. I have one other "Velourette" and it also has a Chamois like finish. I really like the Ribbon and Bow design. This is the second hat from my recent seven hat find. Open Crown Natural Light
