I inherited the hat from a very interesting client. I meet him and he passed two weeks later. 92 years of age in the year 2011. Most interesting man I have ever met. He was in the USAF and an international traveler. The size is a 6 7/8. There is a small bow inside in the back, which indicates it is a women's hat.
There is a printed label inside the hat and it says:
654 Mission St.
San Francisco 5, Calif.
This print is protected by a plastic which is sewn into the lining of the hat. Very well preserved stamped label.
The buttons on the side which hold the adjustable chin straps, are of the same as the embroidered emblem at front. But they seem to be holding a draped rope from claw to claw.
