As far as the Western saddle is concerned, the tree will tell the quality of the saddle. The tooling looks stamped rather then tooled which places it in the lower range of saddles. Many saddles stamp the name of the ultimate seller but not who actually made it so that a tack shop (as an example) can have saddles made in their name but don't actually make the saddle.
Without any further information on that saddle, then condition is what places the value. I wouldn't pay more then $300 for it - on the high end.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
