How much should I ask for this saddle?

Hey everyone! My brother has just sold his horse so now we have alot of unwanted tack. We are looking to sell this saddle but I'm not sure how much I should ask for it.

(Sorry for the horrible pictures, I haven't had the chance to actually take pictures of it yet)







So how much do you think I should ask??

What is it (brand, bars, etc.)?

How old is it?

Quality of leather?

Purchase price?

How long have you used it?

Is it Abetta? How old? I would say (from pics) you could get $140-$200 for it- in my area at least.

Not sure the brand, I will have a look next time I'm at the barn. (as well as take some more pics)

Not sure the age, but we have owned it/used it for 5 monthes.

We purchased it for $400

I'd try to at least get what you bought for it. You can always go down :)
