This is a professionally aged cavalry hat in the style of John Wayne. This has never been worn, but listed it as used due to the aged look. This was a Resistol hat with the Stagecoach brand. This is a size 7 - 7 1/8. All of John Wayne's hats were marked: J. Wayne #2. This was aged just like they did in his movies. The sweet band is made like the mid 1800's type; heavy cloth covered with a tar like coating. This is the style John Wayne wore in Rio Bravo, She Wore A Yellow Ribbon and Fort Apache. This is a one-of-a-kind cavalry hat and won't be made again to sell. If you are a big John Wayne fan and interested in the Civil War / Indian War period, this would look great in your collection or just to wear. I will ship or you may pick up. Good luck and God bless.
