I need price ideas...what would you pay for this?

I have had this saddle a little over a year and I am only the second owner. It is Circle Y brand, 13" seat, All Around, and cost $1,500 when bought new about 4 years ago. In the pics it is dirty and the stirrups are all the way out, so please ignore those factors. I need to sell it in order to buy a new one that fits my mar's withers right. All I am asking is what would you pay for this baby if you came across it? If I left anything out please let me know because I can answer any questions that you might have. I just need opinions. Thanks!

That is what I am looking to get for it...I have been advertising it on Craigslist.com but noone seems to want to pay even remotly close to that price!? Anyone who is intersted has offered me $250 or less and it is making me very aggrevated.

Hmmmmm.... I need to start off with the fact that I'm cheap! I'm the major bargain hunter. As is...dirt and all, I'd try to swindle it out from under you for around $500...if my butt would fit in a 13" seat (which may prove a difficult selling point for you) Shiney and new looking, I'd go as high as $800 maybe $900 but then like I said, I'm cheap.

What are comparable saddles going for in your area and on ebay...that might be a better judge of what it's worth.

Good Luck!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Anything offers less than $400 ae way too cheap. I would put it on ebay. Smaller saddles made by good companies sell pretty well on ebay plus you could set a reserve.

Saddles really aren't too difficult to ship, and the buyer pays shipping :] Do you have a UPS store near you? They usually have all sorts of size boxes and can pack it up nicely for you.

I shipped a saddle through the UPS store and they did an excellent job of packing it for me!

Alright I think that I am going to try it out. What should I set the reserve as? And what kind of pics should I take of it? One from each angle?
