J. Hückel´s Söhne "Jota" "Seal Velour", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 2nd hat from my recent 9 hat find.  The Velour is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable.  The sweatband is textured and is very soft.  The tip patch is in mint condition and the hat appears to have been seldom worn.  This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary).

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Jota" "Seal Velour", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 6th hat (and 2nd "Jota" "Seal Velour") from my recent 9 hat find. The Velour is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable. The sweatband is textured and is very soft. The tip patch is in mint condition and the hat appears to have been seldom worn. Luckily this hat fits me even though it's marked 56 cm.  This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary).

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Lutra", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 7th hat from my recent 9 hat find. This is my first JHS "Lutra" which means European Otter so possibly similar marketing to "Seal Velour".  The Felt is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable. It's a Trachten style Soft Felt which is also the case for my early Tonak Plant Hückel  "Lutra".  The Folkish Band is really interesting / unique.  This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary).

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Jota" "Seal Velour" made for the French Market, possibly late 1920s to mid 1930s.  Stefan of the FL was beyond gracious in making this really fantastic Velour available to me.  He brokered a deal with the French seller and packaged + sent the hat to me.  I owe him a boat load of gratitude.  I wasn't satisfied with the inside photos I took so those will come later.  JHS Black Velour Hats are very difficult to photograph properly.

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Foulard" / Drei - Spitz Marke, Gustav Sellckau Hamburg, FP 6 3/4, Date Stamped 09/16/1931.  This Stiff Felt was made by   J. Hückel´s Söhne (JSH) for Gustav Sellckau Hamburg (GSH).   I have not encountered a "Foulard" JHS Stiff Felt before so it's unique.  It's Date Stamped (09/16/31) which is rare for JHS (probably stamped by GSH) and the Paper Label Type is very similar to the JHS Stiff Felt Paper Label Types 1a, 1b and 2 (which are all similar).  The Felt has a very nice finish and overall condition is excellent.  I have not encountered this type of Sweatband before and it is marked "J / Special" so most likely custom for GSH.

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Elastic", 57.5 cm, 118 grams. possibly mid 1920s to early 1930s.  This is a Ladies Stiff Felt Riding Hat but since it's a JHS + very unique I decided to pick it up.  It appears to be entirely original and in NOS condition.  The Black smooth finished Felt is the same as a Men's JHS "Elastic" Stiff Felt.  The 4.5 cm Brim is not curled and has downward flange with a thin Binding.  The Grosgrain Sweatband with padded which is stitched in with a X pattern.  The Bow is on the left side like Men's Hats.  There is also has a long fabric Strap which you see on some Ladies Hats.  I couldn't find a paper label so maybe this was custom made by JHS.  Definitely a very unique piece for my museum. :)

Hückel Weilheim "Chevreau", 59 cm possibly later 1950s.  The Chamois Felt is lighter in weight and easily dry creases.  This one has a unique braided Band and unique small feather (probably to match the band).

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.

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Omega", French Point 5 1/2, possibly late 1920s early 1930s.  I only know of one other JHS "Omega" Velour (also made for the French Market) on FL that belongs to Robert (RLK) and was found in 2013.  The medium weight light absorbing black  Velour is of very high quality with high gloss and very pliable so easily dry creases. It's non Liner type with Crown patch.  The Band is wide with an interesting Bow design.  The Sweatband has the JHS Hanging Cord at the rear.   The Paper Label is JHS Post WWI Soft Felt Type 1.

Hückel Weilheim "Mercur", 57 cm, probably later 1950s.  The black Belt Felt has a really great finish and the Crown was pre Blocked so I kept it that way.  The small Side Dents were popular in Germany in this time period. Really like the Band width, Bow design and the thinner Binding.  The overall condition is fantastic. This Homburg Hat belonged to Franz Kirchner Forest Director in Ebern, Germany.

J. Hückel´s Söhne "Standard"  "Crystall Velour", FP 5 1/2, possibly late 1920s early 1930s.  The Gray Green "Crystall Velour" has a great finish and easily dry creases.  The liner was very stained so I had to remove and bleach so it lost a good  amount of color.  The  "Crystall Velour" is in good condition which is the most important. The Paper Label is JHS Soft Felts Post WWI Type 1.  The Sweatband has unique green cord band.
