St. Veit (Sankt Veit), 58 cm, Wool Felt, possibly early 1930s.  There isn't a company mark but the paper label has a Sheep with a St. Veit Banner. Sankt Veit an der Glan Schafrasse is a small town in the South East corner of Austria and I couldn't find any Felt Hat production in the town.  My guess is this is the source of the Wool used for the Felt.  The Stiff Felt Hat was sold by a shop (Ludovikus Hagens Wwe) in a small town (Lustenau, Voralberg) in the upper North West corner of Austria.  The Wool Felt has a nice finish and is in very good condition.  The Stiff Felt has great looking Silver Gray Liner with a sharp looking Bow design.

Handwriting on the Sweatband which I will have to take a closer look at.
