It has an open crown and flat brim to start with but over time it would get dents in the crown from the cowboy grabbing it by the crown. The brim would get turned up in places where the cowboy would grab the brim often. It had a gross grain ribbon but some time cowboys would put leather hat bands on it. It was the work horse of hats for the American cowboys. So if you are looking for an original Boss of the Plains Hat then we can help you.
