There is some wear along the brim and top edge, the leather band on the inside has come unstitched along a good portion of the brim but still attached along one side and clean. Small ding on top edge. Small tear in the beige lining. Has initials lightly carved on the inside band The leather case is flaking but still solid.
The top of the case has separated on the narrow sides but is attached under the straps. The silk lining very good, still bright red.
The case has no key so I have not latched it for fear it wouldnt open. Nice example of an antique beaver top hat. Please take a look and let me know if you have questions.
