PATSY CLINE COWBOY HAT
A white treated-fabric cowboy hat adorned with a very thin black and white ribbon; handwritten notations on the interior leather headband read "Patsy Cline 1954" and "Mom Hensley" (possibly worn by Cline's mother as well). According to Patricia Brannon, Cline's cousin, this was one of her favorite hats; she specifically wore it with her "red cowgirl" ensemble (See Lot 71).
