    Unfortunately Its not an army issue slouch hat
    They are made for the civilian market they are sold in disposal and camping stores over here.
    At a guess I would say its from the 1960s or 1970s

    Cheers Luke.

    I wear an Akubra hat every day-they are one of the best made hats in the world. This one looks to be fairly new and virtually unworn, from the looks of the sweatband ad the fur felt not being faded. Theyre great hats. William

    You are right there Luke it is top notch shape for its age found it at good will couple couple of months back I would guess it has been sitting in the back of someones closet for some time. I did a little research on the Akubra William they are as you say very well made and very pricey I might add I was suprised to see them selling for $140-$160 US .
