Make sure when steaming your hat you don't over do it to the point where it actually gets soaked.
If you plan to show in the hat I would suggest taking it to an actual hat maker and have them shape it. Most folks that attempt to shape hats in western retail stores do a horrible job.
It has a man on a bronc on the top inside with "RESISTOL " on it in gold.. it has a leather band inside says RESISTOL "Self-conforming " and made in Texas USA.
Kinda feels like there is wire in the brim? It bends easily, and keeps the bend you make in it. I don't know if that's a good thing or not?
Can a hat maker clean my hat? Its not filthy just dingy from hanging on the wall for years, lol.

Haha!! I might got some at the shop!
