Mayser Melone, size 56cm. Not mine (I was very tempted) but the first pre 1940 Mayser I have come across that wasn't a Topper so very rare. I have never encountered a pre 1940 soft felt Mayser in any size or style.

Mayser "Superbe", Size 60cm. This one is stamped 17 September 1952 inside the sweatband so a rare older one. It has interesting brim stitching and a bunch of brim curl. Not sure if it's a factory crease but whoever did it did a super job. Also in very good condition.

Mayser Supra Homburg (date stamped 1950) belongs to Fritz (Manfred). This is the oldest documented soft felt Mayser I have encountered. Fantastic bow work!

This great Mayser Homburg belongs to RobStc on the FL. Probably mid 1950s.

 

"Colour in real life is a far richer, darker chestnut brown. Condition is pretty much perfect. Picked it up a while ago in a bunch of German hats that appeared in my local vintage shop. Any idea on age of this one?"

Another great find by Manfred (Fritz).

 

"Nice Ebay buy. Old Classic Mayser Grand Prix in very good Condition.

The shape, looks very classic for me. You can it also wear, with brim down.

I think mid 50s. Low Price 5,50 EUR"

Mayser Talpa (Mole in Italian), size 56cm, 1930s. This is the first old Mayser soft felt I have found after looking for 6 years so very rare. The Velour color and finish (Mole like color and finish?) are right up there with the finest old Austrian Velours. The original size tag is still present. Also a taped sweat which is a first regarding Mayser. I checked with Rosenheim city archives and the hat store did not survive WWII. This is my top find of the year so far.
