This hat is completely covered with dyed blue mink fur except for a 3" diameter circle at the top of the crown which is made of wool or whatever type of fabric lines the inside of the hat. The inside band is made of black velvet. There is an attached comb on either side of the inside of the hat to hold it on the head. The inside circumference is 20.75. I don't see any split skins or bald spots. Very nice condition with slight soiling (looks like makeup) on the part of the inside band that would go over the forehead.
