Haband Through the Years

Haband is one of the real great American brands, and the made wonderful ties back in the day. The first blue and red leaves motif tie is quite an early Haband, the length, shape and construction suggest it’s probably fro the middle 1930s. The second one, with horse and hounds (hunting a fox that doesn’t appear on the tie?) is most likely fro the early to middle 1940s, and the last striped one is from the late 40s or early 50s. Note the subtle difference in the map of the USA between horse ‘n hounds and stripes. Stripes acquires Michigan and the upper peninsula, for some reason absent on horse ‘n hounds.
