American-made and never worn, real vintage 1980's hat. The hat is in premium condition for its age and has been stored properly over the years.
The patch featured on this hat is the fifty-fifth federal duck stamp produced by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The original artwork was an acrylic painting by Daniel Smith of Bozeman, Montanna. Smith is a freelance artist who has earned many honors in the wildlife art world, from winning numerous state stamp design competitions to illustrating pages of National Geographic's Guide to North American Birds. 1,403,005 of these stamps were sold during the 1988 season, and it is the second stamp to sell at $10.
