Neka, it sounds like a very old saddle. Saddles have been made with Blevins buckles for a very long time and "D" rings that are anything other then stainless indicate an inexpensive one at that.
Most likely you will have to replace the stirrup leathers as well when you install the Blevins and I think the renovations it may cost more then the saddle is worth.
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.
