    Audie Murphy's 3X Worth Walden Co. Hat with Hard Case and "ALM" Stamped in Gold on Case. Audie Murphy became a Hollywood star after achieving fame as World War II's most decorated soldier, a man who received the Congressional Medal of Honor and credit for having killed over 240 German soldiers. He became a movie actor and starred in the 1955 film version of his autobiography, To Hell and Back, a box office smash. His later years were unhappy ones, including an acquittal of a murder charge, pill addiction and bankruptcy, ending in his death by plane crash in 1971 and a funeral with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. This is Murphy's cowboy hat, designed by "Worth-Walden Co., Custom Hatters, Dallas," whose trademark appears on the top of the inside crown. The company's name is also engraved on the inside band, as is "Beaver Thirty-Five" and "Audie L. Murphy." The hat comes with its orignal very impressive black hinge-topped hatbox, with lock, carrying handle, and the gold initials "ALM" on the top. The hat has some staining on the crown and the box has some damage on the top - overall Fine condition. A handsome memento from a man with historic distinction in the military and Hollywood.
