I just acquired this bowler derby hat. I have not seen one like this one. It has vent holes in the sides. It's made by Wingert & Haas (successors to H.L. Boas) of Lancaster, PA. As you can see, the hat is in really nice condition for it's age.
I've researched but can only find an advertisement for Wingert & Haas in a January 12, 1906 issue if the Lititz (PA) Record Newspaper.
Does anyone on CW have any further information on this hat and the manufacturer? I'd love to know something more about it and how old it is.
Thanks for the Help!
