Wegener "Seal", 60 cm, Open Crown 6 inches, Brim 2 1/2 inches probably mid 1950s. I don't believe this one had a liner so missing the crown patch. The Felt is a very nice Gray color with a fantastic Chamois finish.

Here are a couple photos of me wearing it outside. I think it looks better in sun light.

Wegener "Super", 60cm possibly late 1950s early 1960s. This is a really nice later Homburg that is in great condition. R. & M. Wegener made great Homburgs and their dressing department was one of the finest.

I have an interesting + old Stiff Felt from Henrich Klipper Offenbach a. M. that you can see more about here.

R. & M. Wegener, 58cm possibly late 1920s. I was happy to find this hat because pre WWII R. & M. Wegener Soft Felts are a rare find. I have one other so this makes two and there are no others here. The felt color and finish are fantastic, same with the form and dressing. Unfortunately the paper label is missing but there is a small size tag. The previous owner of the hat was Oswald Täsler, born November 11, 1889 in Silesia.

Wegener "Cornett", 58cm early 1950s. Great form with extreme rear brim flange. The medium weight smoother finish felt is a rich brown and easily dry creases. Also a unusual + effective ribbon width.

Wegener "Extra", 58 cm, possibly later 1940s early 1950s.  I tend to think this one is older because of components.  The felt is great and easily dry creases.  There are some issues due to wear but nothing too bad.

Wegener "Seal", 57 cm possibly mid to later 1950s.  The felt color and Chamois finish are fantastic.  Also like the ribbon width and bow design.  Wegener liked to use names of German towns for their colors, in this case "Fritzlar".

Wegener "Start", 58 cm, possibly late 1920s early 1930s.  Over Welt Curled Brim with Back Bow. There might be some wool in the felt mix.  A mix of colors with rougher clip but a very soft hand. There is some wear but still in very good condition with all original components including the crown patch.  I only have two other old Wegener Soft Felts so a rare find.

The paper label is similar to this Wegener "Elasticon" Stiff Felt that belongs to Robert (RLK).

Wegener "Em / 7", 58cm, Brim 2 1/4 inches, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, 3.00 ounces, NOS condition, possibly 1950s.  The greenish blue felt is very light weight  and pliable. "Em / 7" might be related to the felt weight.  The bow design, form and dimensions are very similar to some later 1930s and early 1940s German market hats.

Hut - Braun, Peter Braun (est. 1598) is still in business but not at the address on the hat (Bahnhofstr. 16.) which adds mystery to the dating.  I will have to see if I can find why this is the case.
