    Anyone know what brand this western might be?

    I purchased this saddle on consignment at my LTS, and it has no brand stamp, no name, no serial number. Just stamped that its a 16. I haven't been able to find ANYTHING like it on the internet. Any thoughts on what it might be?

    A lot of saddles are sold without a brand. Usually cheap, and not as nice as the big name saddles (I have three, "no names"), but hey, as long as they fit properly, they get the job done, right?

    So I may never be able to find any other information on it. That's alright I guess, I suppose I was hoping for something in case of re-sell. Do you know what saddles like this typically go for? It isn't "Cardboard" leather but it def. Isn't top dollar.

    Used no names here, like that saddle, about $150.

    Oh gosh, you are breaking my heart! Even a leather one that is in really good condition?! I've been looking to trade/sell it so that I can get a better padded seat (my tush needs some cush!) and I was really hoping to hear a little more than that.

    Depending on the condition, (where I am at least) a used no namer usually sells between $50 - $300, $300 being it is in very good condition. If you're looking to sell it, list it at the price you want to sell it for, and add OBO (or best offer) and see what people are willing to pay for it. You get some good insight that way.

    Unfortunately, yes. Anyone who knows about saddles, avoids those, and the ones that don't, don't usually want to spend much money.

    You know, there is a lot of junk out there, but to me this looks like a good saddle. From the photo I don't see any of the earmarks of a junk saddle.

    While I'm sure it's not top-of-the-line (any company worth their salt will mark their saddles) this just doesn't look like junk to me. It's got nice stirrups and the tooling looks to be nice quality from what I can see. It's got nice laced cantle binding and well, it just looks like a nicer saddle to me. Even the breast collar rings are in the right place......I don't think I've ever seen that on a cheap saddle. I think if you sold it for $150 someone would feel like they stole it!

    I would try for more in the $300-$400 (maybe even in the $500) range. Heck, if you didn't tell me it was a no-name I would guess it was a Cactus or Martin or something like that.

    PS. I'm swooning over that saddle in the background! That's just my style!

    Does the stirrups attach with belvins or buckles?

    That makes me feel a little better! I have replaced the stirrups with etched aluminum offsets which IMO makes the saddle look a WHOLE lot better. It really is built well with good materials, and I felt like what I paid was a fair price.

    I feel your pain with the saddle in the back ground. To my back was a wall full of tucker and circle y trail saddles, be glad I didn't take a picture of the other side!
