Brahma Tex Tan Saddle 2000 model??

I have a friend that is trying to sell this saddle. She's wanting to know any information I can find on it and what it's worth. I'd never heard of it, so I figured I'd ask here.

Ps. She says she called Tex Tan..and they couldn't give her any information regarding the saddle. She's suppose to be sending me the serial number in the next day or so.

Bump.....anyone???

This is what I know. The numbers on the saddle were 08-3003R6 and 09-00-25337. The name of the saddle is BRAHMA BRAND*by TEX TAN WESTERN LEATHER CO

Is this a good saddle? And what would you consider paying for it? Is it worth $600? A friend has this saddle for sale. Used 3-4 times.

Bump? Anyone? I could use any information by tomorrow as she will "pawn" it on Monday.

Tex Tan is an old name in Western saddles. The new ones are not as well made as the older ones but they are still nice. Before I pawned the saddle, I would put it on ebay starting at $499 and see what it does. I would bet the ranch that a pawn shop will only give you ~$200 for it.

Saddles are not selling quite as well as they did a year or so ago but this is the right season to sell it.

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.

Its not up to me, not my saddle. A friend of mine owns the saddle and as offered it to me for $600. I think she thinks she will get $600 for pawning it. I wanted to hear the good and bad on Tex tan and see who rides in one. Was also hoping that someone would know if it's fqhb or sqhb?

Here's an older ad I found. Also was told by my saddlemaker friend that the Brahma line is their cheaper line. That the numbers 09-00-25337 would more than likely be the month and year of completion

Thank you for your time. I couldn't find a similar saddle no matter how hard I looked so I figured it was their lower quality line. I declined to buy the saddle. It's honestly not what I am hoping to have in my next saddle.

What kind of saddle are you wanting? Do you know what brand you think you want? Horseclicks is a good place to find some good buys.

Tell your friend she will likely be highly disappointed in how much a pawnbroker will give her. I wouldnt be surprised if it's only $75 or so. They can read how desperate someone is for money and they are also in it to make a good dollar. I had friends who pawned stuff so I know how little they got.
