Just realised that I didn't entirely answer your question.
These saddles sell new for around $250, when yours was new around $150.
Mounted means that the girth, stirrup leathers and stirrup irons would be included.
This saddle has a cut back head (the area at the pommel) so you measure it from the small silver stud on the side to the centre back of the cantle. If the saddle was straight cut you would measure it from the centre of the front of the pommel to the centre of the back of the cantle.

Here's a video we shot the other day for how to measure the seat :)

Hope it helps you.

As long as the tree is in good condition and the saddle fits your horse alright, the saddle should be okay for some basic use. If you're planning on riding in it a lot, I'd probably get something in a bit better shape - that saddle has been used quite a bit.
