Classic felt cowboy hat by Resistol. This is a vintage hat of uncertain age, I was unable to locate any other Resistol hats with this style of hat box. I am guessing it to be from the peak of their popularity, 1970s to early 80s. This is a XXX beaver felt hat, size 7 1/2.
The box has done its job and kept this hat in excellent condition. This hat is very clean and does not appear to have been worn much. There is what looks like a pencil mark under the front brim, as if someone used a pencil to push the hat back off their forehead. The hat is otherwise very clean both inside and out. I think the feather may have been more substantial at some point, but being taken in and out of the box may have worn it down. See the pictures for noted flaws.
The box show more wear than the hat. The corners of the lid are split open on a couple of the corners, there are scuff marks and general signs of wear but it can still do the job it was intended to do.
Both the hat and the box are marked with the Resistol name. There is also a stamp inside the band of "Corral Stores" with a list of their Wyoming locations.
Inside band: 22 3/4"
Front brim: 3"
Front crown height: 5"
Overall dimensions: 14 1/2"x13 1/2"x5 1/2"
Box dimensions: 17"x15"x8"
