  2. My Second Luzena Cap is arrived today. Very nice mint condition. My guess, mid 50s early 60s. The fabric looks similar to my first Luzena Cap but it's definately not a corduroy fabric. It's a very thick fabric. Here some photos! Good to see, the difference!
  3. I am glad that this hat is in your hands, Steve, a fantastic and unique Hat!
  4. The Big Deal? I bought 4 unworn and new old stock German hats. All are open Crown. Two are Velour in Size 53 and 56 and two felt size 53 and 56. My guess from the mid 40s to the early 50s. The Sweatbands are stiff and dry out over the years.The Quality of the Velour is good. The brown Prima Haarhut has a very stiff felt and has a bit longer hair. Steve and I are agree that they are from the early, 50s The Velour The Prima Haarhut

  13. The Chapeau Claque factory was founded in 1905 by Albert Eisele Achern. Therefore, this year marks 100th anniversary, which still is not sure whether this is done publicly or family. The factory was then the fifth Folding cylinder factory in the area Achern. She was named Aleisa, after the Initials of the founder and the first letter of the city founder (Albert Eisele Achern).
