This hat has quite a pedigree. Inside the crown, it bears a gold label for Weber & Heilbroner New York. Gerald Miller & Co. Lancaster, Ohio Sole Agents. Under the leather inner band are two more labels declaring the size to be 6 7/8. Block 4719. Depth 5 3/4. Lot 658731. The second label states " The trimmings and wearing qualities of this hat are guaranteed in every particular......should same not prove satisfactory through ordinary wear, we request that you call the attention of your hatter to same. Frank Schoble & Co. Philadelphia U.S.A. The leather inner band is branded Gerald Miller & Co. Of Lancaster, Ohio." The hat itself is handsome, dapper, gentlemanly. It is of a stiff, felted black construction with invisible ventilation holes in the top. Adorning the crown is a grained silk ribbon. The same ribbon protects the brim which is slightly upturned. The measurements are 11.5 inches from front to back; 9.5 inches side to side. His hat would be a good addition to a play house costume collection or a private collection. It is nice enough to wear today.
