It looks very well cared-for. Are the panels and billets in good shape?
Courbettes are good saddles. Swiss. They're not super high-end like Devoucoux or anything, but certainly respectable. I'd put them in the same tier as Stubben, Crosby, Collegiate, or thereabouts.
I hope I don't mess up the history here...
I might be wrong, but from what I remember, Felsbach AG and Kloster Beim Schonthal merged to become Courbette. Or something like that. I haven't ridden in a Courbette, but I have ridden in the other two. They were both well-made, but I far preferred the seat of the Kloster. Some of the Courbettes I've seen clearly look like Klosters, and some look like Felsbachs. I think your looks like a Felsbach I rode in, but who knows.

They're well-made, tough saddles. If you're comfortable in it, and your horse is comfortable in it, then it's a good saddle.
