AN ORIGINAL NYSP STETSON IN MINT CONDITION!!! In storage for the last 55 years but in virtually the same condition when issued!!! It comes with the original oval hat box that the Stetson Hat Company used to include with all of their hats thereby dating it to the late 50's or early 60's. Stetson began issuing their hats with rectangular hat boxes in the 60's.
This hat came from the estate of a long retired NY Trooper. It is like new and has no evidence of wear whatsoever - even comes with the original black leather hat strap which is a better quality than what is issued today! Stetson discontinued making hats for the NYSP in the late 60's. Stratton has been the maker of NYSP hats since then.The notable difference with the old Stetsons is that the crown is higher and the eyelets for the leather strap are more in the front of the hat. This is a rare gem perfect for the NYSP collector, police hat collector, or a police museum! I have never come across one in this like new condition in all my years of collecting.
