Billy Cook Saddle id # and selling info

I have been reading your posts on Billy Cook saddles and was hoping someone could give me some guidance. I have my mom's BC saddle and was fully intending to keep it forever after she passed from a brain tumor. Just this past Saturday, her 33 year old quarter horse left this world to hopefully again be with mom. I know I will never be using this saddle and it takes alot of time keeping it looking nice and I am now considering selling it. I found this number under the stirrup 1050481 and will attempt to post some pictures as well. I also have another saddle that I have no idea of its worth. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Those are both good saddles. Do not sell before having them appraised.

Can you please measure the seats on them; from the back edge of the pommel to the place on the cantle where the stitching is (where the seat ends and the edge roll begins)

The Billy Cook is 16"
The second saddle is 15.5"
Thanks so much for getting back to me on this. I guess my next step is to look for an actual "saddle appraiser"

Selling two saddles

Got these saddles looked at our the weekend and was given an approximate cost for advertising them. Was hoping someone knowledgeable could give them just a quick look and their thoughts on their worth. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Billy Cook saddle is 16" second saddle is 1.5"

I am not an appraiser but my estimate (as someone who as been around horses and a lot of saddles) would be around $600 a piece. I actually like the Billy Cook the best as a using saddle, but the parade saddle is in really nice shape. It doesn't look like real silver, only "dots" but it sure is beautiful and in nice condition. Maybe someone else can chime in as well. I certainly wouldn't take any less that $500 each (unless you really need to sell them) but I don't know how much over $600 they would bring either.

If you ask slightly higher than you will take, you have a little wiggle room for bargaining.

Some of it will also depend on what the market will bare in your area. Saddles seem to bring more out west (like in Arizona where I am), while I have talked to some folks in the mid-west who pick up saddles for $50 at auction! So it will depend on your local market as well.

You can try doing searches for similar saddles on eBay and see what they bring. They usually go for a little less on eBay because folks can't see the saddle in person and they have to pay shipping. But you can get a ball-park.

Thanks for the information; I plan to get them advertised in the near future. Again, I appreciate your post.
