9. Panama hat
As every Ecuadorian worth their salt will tell you, famous Panama hat is actually Ecuador hat. The misplaced origin of one of the most famous head gear in history occurred in the 19th century, when Ecuador products were exported through Panama, with the name of the destination stamped on the crates. People who bought them mistook it as a country of origin. Ecuador even has museums dedicated to their stolen hats, where they will explain in great detail to every visitor how the mistake happen, regardless of the visitors’ wish to know.
