The "fuzzy" texture to the leather is "Roughout". It is a method of tanning the leather so that it has a nap and it's used to give the rider a little extra grip. Do Not Oil it or you will defeat the purpose. Be careful with the Neatsford. New saddles are made with a nylon thread but the old ones used cotton and Neatsford can rot cotton.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. It's not always what you say but what they hear.
can't help with the ID at all. Look on the back of the cantle, under the jockeys, etc. You might find something.
Just clean with good plain saddle soap, and a just-damp cloth. When dry, use a good conditioner like Dr Jackson's Creme (from Tandy), Bick 4, Aussie Leather conditioner, or pure neatsfoot oil Don't soak it, just a light coat and let dry. Condition again a day or two later.
Use the saddle and condition from time to time. It might need a few more applications since it's been not used for so long.
