The following is very interesting.

Album für (for) Mayser 's Neuheitens (New Releases), Mai (May) 1914, from the Gotisches Haus (Gothic House) Bad Homburg , Germany hat collection.

(This is a large image so you have to click on it to see the details. Very interesting Bow designs and of course great hats from May 1914.  Also has the "Art/Form" and "Farbe/Color" numbers)

50110726946_f1892cf069_k.jpg

"Art/Form" is "Form" in English.  The "Art/Form" number is 5 digits for Soft Felts and all start with 34 (1914).  The "Art/Form" number is 4 digits for Stiff Felts and the only examples starts with 48 (1914).  The numbers increment because here are some later examples (probably at least WWII era).

"Art/Form" 49703 (Possible Oldest Soft Felt)  - "Art/Form" 34846 (First Hat, Upper Left) = 14857 (Difference Since 1914)
I wasn't able to match any of the older Mayser Soft Felt "Farbe/Color" numbers but I will check some of the later Soft Felts.

1937 date stamped envelope from a Dutch Mayser distributor (N.V. Hoedenmaatschappij, Bussum). The Mayser logo on the envelope matches the above sweatband logo.

16665048999_7295353747_b.jpg 

"Art/Form" 5157 (Possibly Oldest Stiff Felt) - "Art/Form" 4854 (Bottom Center) = 303 (Difference Since 1914)
There isn't a "Farbe/Color" number for "Art/Form" 4854 because Black is "Farbe 1" for all Mayser Soft and Stiff Felt Hats I have encountered.

Here is some additional information.

"Art/Form" numbers for October 1931 are 46657, 45023.

Possibly an older Soft Felt with a lower number "Art/Form" 42387.  Possibly from the same time period as the Mayser / Johann Zehme Stiff Felt posted above. This hat belongs to Huthase on the FL.

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."

Mayser Hats Year 125 (1925)

I translated the "Mayser Hats Year 125" booklet from 1925.  You can click on the pages and images to enlarge.  Also click on the embedded links to see the associated images.  I still need to fix some minor translation issues.

Mayser "Libelle", 58 cm, possibly later 1950s.  The Felt has a great color / finish and easily dry creases.  Also a really interesting Bow and Brim treatment.   This is my second "Libelle" so not a common Mark.

Unique "Echter Mayser" Celluloid Label attached to the Sweatband.  I have never seen one of these before so a very pleasant surprise.

I made a reverse image of the "Echter Mayser" Celluloid Label and translated the German text to English.

You Made The Right Choice With This Genuine Mayser.

It is the best German brand hat, made from the finest materials.

It preserves your personal touch and protects you from sun and rain.

You will enjoy it for a long time if you entrust its care to a specialist shop.

Echter Mayser "Spezial", 59 cm possibly mid 1950s.  The Black Felt has a great Finish and easily dry creases.  Classic Form with very stylish Bow design which Mayser used often with their Homburgs in this time period.

The hat was severally crushed at the brim edge during shipping.  The box was pulverized (most likely by USPS) and had to be wrapped in shrink wrap by USPS.  I thought it was lost but arrived yesterday with no status update from USPS since early September.

The photos were taken after popping the crown out so originally more crushed.

Mayser "Grosser Preis" / M. Mertés Hutfabrik, Jnh. Max Hecht Nürnberg Karolinenstr. 8, measures 58.5 cm, possibly late 1920s early 1930s (this based on a February 3, 1932 Newspaper Sweatband Spacer). This one is difficult to date because of the non matching Liner and Sweatband plus no Paper Label.  I tend to think it was made by Mayser Ulm based on the construction, components and Felt  are of very high quality.  I have collected some information but have to do more research.  It's rare to find a Mélange Stiff Felt.  I believe this is Fur Felt because of the very soft hand but it might have some Wool in the mix. The Mélange is mostly different shades of Gray maybe a tinge of Red other unknown Colors.  The Finish is some what roughly clipped so  Flamand Velour like.  This is one of my better recent finds.  As I mentioned it's difficult / rare to find this type of Stiff Felt.

I purchased the following items from a lady (Barbara Rasspe-Dahmann) whose family owned Pelzhaus Josef Seiffert 1863 Solingen ,Germany (see link below).  Josef Seiffert was her Great Grandfather.  The store closed in 2017.  The items are from the 1950s and later.
