Kind of interesting... I just found these two old, handmade, hand-formed fiber cowboy /Indian hats. I think the style is called Stetson "Boss of the Plains". I found them at the same location that I found 2 Apache woven baskets. Definitely o-l-d. I'm guessing they were probably from the late 1800s. I've seen old photos online of Indians wearing these hats. fyi: They are stiff. No labels or markings.
:icon_scratch: I don't know what I'm going to do with them but I only paid 50-cents each. Cool and unusual find.
