Franz Gober München F. G. M.


Recommended Posts

Heather green (very thick felt) F. G. M. Försterhut, size 57 (fits like long oval 58cm). The tapered crown is about 6 inches open and the felt ribbon close to 3 inches. The company patch is missing. Probably late 1950s early 1960s. I am very happy about this find. :)

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."
