I had an old Simco pony saddle (black, with silver dots, like a parade saddle) and it had fenders like that. Unfortunately I don't have photos. But it wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't an older Simco.
With only a number and no maker's stamp, I am fairly certain it is a mass produced saddle vs. a custom saddle. Most private saddle makers seem to stamp their names in several places. Not to mention it just looks like a mass produced saddle (no knock on the saddle, it just doesn't look like a custom to my eyes).
