Saddle Brand or Maker help needed

Hello,

I bought this saddle and it seems really nice. All leather and it is tooled. The leather seems of good quality. The cinch end holder is the only place that has a stamp and that reads a 10 and then below that is 3770. However, with that being said, I cannot find any other maker mark and would very much like to know who made the saddle and what its actual value is. Here are some pictures.

Look up under the fender, maybe on the skirt or underside of jockey. It's a fairly good quality saddle. I'll bet it's heavy. I'll date it's making between 1955 and 1970 by the style of the forks and the yellow leather on the jockeys and fenders.

Thank you for your response. I looked in those areas and I cannot find anything. I don't know if it was rubbed out of the leather for how old it is. But like you said, it is a good quality saddle. I really do like it. I think it is uniquely colored as well. I mean I've seen two toned saddles before, but never where it spread down onto the fenders AND stirrups.

Which is leading me to believe that this was a custom made saddle. I cannot find another made saddle like this one, and that is really unusual for me, as I come across a lot of saddles, and I usually can find an identical of the saddle. Not this one. I was talking with a saddle expert per say, and they told me that Circle Y saddles way back when, would not put their "tramp stamp" lol, on custom made saddles. They would just put a serial number. I have no idea if there is any truth to that or not.

With that all being said, it is a let down to not know who made this nice saddle. YES,,,the saddle is heavy, but not like you would think. I don't think it is as heavy as a lot of the newer show saddles on the market today. I cleaned it up over the weekend and oh my, this saddle is in awesome shape. The leather straps from the conchos are soft and pliable, and the fenders are very soft and smooth, the saddle whoever had it for most of its life, took very good care of it. Every stitch on the saddle is tight and intact along with all the hardware screws.

Anyway,,,,,thank you again for your feedback, I appreciate it. I guess I am going to list it on Ebay as unknown but I am confident that buyers will see the quality in this saddle and bid appropriately.

Happy Trails,
Kelly
