The underside of the lip says 'John Wayne Comancheros'.
The iconic cowboy hat that John Wayne wore in six major western films has emerged for auction and is set to fetch £17,000.
The felt accessory was worn by the actor in 'The Comancheros', 'McClintock', 'The Sons of Katie Elder', 'El Dorado', and 'The Undefeated.'
The famous star burst into Hollywood in 1930 and he featured in around 170 movies throughout his career.
He worked alongside his stunt double, Chuck Roberson, for more than 30 years and gave him the hat as a present.
