    Description

    Lyndon B. Johnson: Trademark Western-Style Hat. Size 7 1/4 grayish-green beaver hat. The leather sweatband is gold-stamped: "Made Expressly For President Lyndon B. Johnson", as well as "Resistol 'Self-Conforming' Wide Country XXX Beaver". The satin lining has a logo of the Lone Star State inscribed "Johnson City LBJ Ranch". It comes in the original oval hat box with identical LBJ Ranch logo on the top (scattered tape repairs where the paper covering has split or started to peel away). The hat itself is in great condition with only a very small spot of soiling. We sold a nearly identical hat in 2017 for $3375. Apparently, LBJ kept a supply of these hats at his ranch which he would give to special guests.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
