how much is a circle y worth?

I have an older model Circle Y saddle sitting in my parent's basement and they have told me that it has got to go. How much are these saddles generally worth? I will try to get pictures of it when I go home next, if I remember correctly it was in super good shape and was completly covered in tooling and was a dark havana color. I don't think it had any silver on it. I got it when I bought my QH three years ago for a song from a woman I worked for and it ended up not fitting him (or me very well for that matter).

Circle Ys are expensive. You should get good money for it when it is all cleaned up ;) Most of them around here are in the $1000s.

You can probably get $800+ for it if it is still in good condition.

It should have a serial number on it. Look up the model and year manufactured.

If it's been in the basement - what shape is it in? The moldly, musty smell is very hard to get out of a saddle.

I think I had it covered with some blankets and sitting up on a sawhorse. My parents basement isn't the typical basement though either, its actually all finished and could be a seperate apartment if they wanted to.

I'm not a western person, so I am not really familar with the brands, but wow, didn't know they went for so much!

Circle Y has become an somewhat expensive saddle. The older ones are usually a good buy but value depends on condition, style, size, tree style, and age. Down here, I've seen nice Circle Y's selling used for anywhere from $300 to $900 depending on what I've mentioned. I've also seen some Circle Y's that aren't worth $50 but overall they sell well.

Truthfully, it's only worth what someone will pay you for it :)

It's called Dark Oil, not havanah .

Depending on the style, condition, seat size, and tree size, it could sell from $250-700. I haven't seen an older Circle Y go for any more than that in our current market.

If I remember correctly I have the matching breast collar and it also has a rear girth...cinch...whatever it's called. :p I'll post pictures sometime today to give a better idea of what it looks like.

I appreciate all the help, like I said I am not a very good judge of western stuff and the prices on ebay are all over the place.
