I picked this saddle up at a recent tack sale for just $47. I don't know much about western saddles and was wondering if anyone could give me a little more info about it. I can't find a name/brand anywhere on it, but did locate these symbols on the underside. Does anyone know what they mean?
Those numbers are add-ons. The reason some of these older saddles don't bear a maker's mark is often because of minor flaws that don't effect the saddle. The mfg would give a dealer a good deal on them, but didn't want to be identified. Another reason is dealers want to put their own name on them to advertise their business and don't want the maker's name on it. The saddle is an economy model but a better economy than what we see today. Let us know if you keep or wish to sell.
