Mad Hatter's hat

  • on: March 18, 2010, 04:55:05 PM
Did you watch Alice in Wonderland by Tim Burton?
There's an odd clue on the Mad Hatter's hat.
A white label... and a number on it: 10/6
Is this a date?  :shock:
What do you think about i?
(Please excuse my english)

This is information I got, plus my sister loves Alice in Wonderland so she new where to find the answers. :D

"The card or label on the Hatter's hat reads "In this style 10/6". "10/6" means ten shillings and six pence (or a half guinea), the price of the hat in pre-decimalised British money and acts as a visual indication of the hatter's trade. (There were 21 shillings to the guinea, 20 shillings to the pound and 12 pennies to a shilling ... thus 10/6 = £0.525.) With inflation, £0.525 in 1865 would be worth about £40.55 in 2002[2]."


But that is Wikipedia so:

"Back at Yahoo! we typed in "the Mad Hatter," and browsed through a list of site matches, but nothing looked promising, so we went on to the web page matches. A site about Mad Hatter Day piqued our curiosity so we headed there. We learned that Mad Hatter Day is the "second silly day" of the year (the first being April Fool's Day) and is celebrated on 10/6 (October 6 in the United States; June 10 in Britain). Was the "10/6" a reference to a date?

Looking for confirmation, we clicked on a link to another Mad Hatter Day page. At last we found our answer. The site explains that while Mad Hatter Day is celebrated on 10/6 in honor of the number on the top hat, "some astute observers have noted that the paper in the Mad Hatter's Hat was really an order to make a hat in the style shown, to cost ten shillings sixpence."

There you have it -- the "10/6" appears to be the price of the hat. So, next time you pass someone on the street wearing a hat with the price tag still attached, you can thank (or blame) John Tenniel for starting this revolutionary fashion trend."

hi guys, just throwing this out there. some people pointed out that the tag on the hat may say 7016 if we look at it diagonally (i mean, no doubt is says 10/6 but it could have other meanings embedded). i brought up 7016 because i think july 16th is possibly significant, after TS's 'TIME DOTS' and 7.16pm PT posting of Update #6.

this is the trailer for Alice in Wonderland,
from 0:30, the Mad Hatter says "You're back!" :D

Just a thought! ;)

(creds to mjb, nancy & a hoax video which apparently pointed 7016 out already but i couldn't find it.)
