International interest
Veilingmeester Jeroen Hamelink from Catawiki indicated that there was interest from all over the world for the black fedora slit hat. "Michael Jackson wore this type of hat both during concerts and in private. The hat from the auction is a private hat worn by Michael. Michael Jackson gave this hat, which he had specially made, to a customs officer at Los Angeles airport in 2002. The hat is extra special because there are traces of his make-up on the edge. " The expected revenue was also achieved. Eventually the hat was bought by a collector living in England.
