You might not notice by looking at the hats but please know that you can and you will definitely feel/notice them when you hold them in your hand! THAT SAID, it is a somewhat common occurrence in these old original hats for foam deterioration as well as the bills to have breaks/cracks/damage/defects in/on them... I'm not sure what they used back in the day to make these hat bills out of, but it seems they might have used lightweight cardboard and/or some other lightweight materials, in their bills, that obviously did not seem to last over the years, without breaking. The inner bill material seems to get brittle and/or break down over the years for whatever reasons (same with the foam they used back in the day).
The majority of these bills were not broke when I got them but instead they broke when I tested them to see if I could form the bill... Please note that some of these bills may just have one break in them and some bills may have more!!!I also want to point out two additional issues (obvious defects in my opinion) on two other hats: #1 the Greenup Grain hat (the one with the big G) does not have a snapback closure on it (the snapback has been broken completely off of it). PLUS #2 the Cargill Nutrena Feeds patch (the patch on the green full mesh hat) is only held on by two safety pins (this patch was safety pinned onto the mesh when I got it, so I just left it that way)..... That said, You will get EVERY HAT that you see photographed (25 TOTAL) nothing more and nothing less!
I collected these hats from assorted estate sales over the years. I believe the majority (if not all) of these hats to be Original Vintage Hats. Some of these hats appear to be NOS (New Old Stock) hats and some are clearly worn, dirty, soiled, stained, and/or AS-IS USED HATS!
I seen, and you should expect to see assorted imperfections, flaws, defects, fading, staining, dirt, loose threads, missing threads, holes, rips, tears, deteriorating foam, damaged foam, missing foam etc... Please Note that it is a common occurrence for the foam in these old snapback type hats to become brittle, peel, flake and/or to fall out with age! That said, I did notice flaking/broken down foam so I removed the majority of what I could and then I blew the hats off with an air hose. I'm sure the hats that had the old style foam in them will still need to be cleaned out better, but I surely made your task a lot easier by doing this! Some of the lighter material hats collapsed due to age, foam deterioration and/or its removal.
These hats, like most, have been stored in a folded position over the years (the back half folded into the front half, sort of speak). I see assorted patch hats, embroidered hats, screen print hats, etc.. The hats you will receive are as follow.
