    I am always interested to see how people display their collections. I have many of my hats on display in my home office, where they proudly show when I am doing meetings with a web cam. I prefer the type of wall mount that supports the whole hat from underneath, not just pushing them in the middle. The window is covered, so they don't get enough light in here to fade. I try to use a hat-jack for everything that isn't on a hanger.

    The hats are mostly military, with a few police hats and a couple of masonic ones. I have hats from the 1920s to modern and from quite a few countries. Most are real, but I have a few reproductions.

    Included in these pictures are hats for cadets from the US military academies, all seven US uniformed services and the three US uniformed auxiliaries. I have several Soviet bloc hats from the Cold War era, hats from Mexico, Denmark, Yugoslavia, Argentina, Italy, Canada, Australia, Britain and China. The slouch hat is from the Korean war.

    If you see anything interesting let me know and I'll post a picture separately.

      Meyer11706 I use hat display racks. They are made for hat stores, and usually available on EBay for about $10 each. They install easily with just a couple of screws. There are a couple of kinds- I'd choose the "domed" kind because they help the hat keep its shape.
