    I wonder if this really belonged to a one man band named "A Ringer". I know my brother bought it somewhere around 1980 but I have no idea where. It certainly seems unique to me.

    It looks quite small in the photo with your hand. Can you give some measurements?

    You can still take them out.

    Nice hat! I wonder if that's a double entendre on the expression "Ringer"

    a person who rings church bells (as for summoning the congregation) 2. a person who is almost identical to another 3. a contestant entered in a competition under false pretenses 4. (horseshoes) the successful throw of a horseshoe or quoit so as to encircle a stake or peg Familiarity information: RINGER used as a noun is uncommon.

    It's 9 1/2 inches from the back to the tip of the brim. About 6 3/4 across. You'd have to have a really small head or be a kid for it to fit I think.

    Or from a stuffed toy monkey portrayed as a one man band? Just another WAG.

    Sorry I missed you yesterday! I'm surprised nobody else put up any info on this hat.
