Vintage saddle and tack

Hey I just joined hoping someone on here can help me out with some vintage tack. I am somehow drawn to the old saddles and bridles I guess because of it's patina. My husband is turning me into a saddle junkie of sorts. Recently we purchased an old saddle that was advertised as a " Peruvian saddle' and has the letters TSF on the back of the cantle and on the skirt. I have tried looking and searching on line but have come up empty. It is a western style with an A fork design. I am thinking it may be from pre- 1930 due to the narrow gullet. I will try and post a link from the auction showing the pictures and description.

It's a beauty!!!!
Certainly not a Peruvian, tho.
The letters might be just the initials of a previous owner.
The Western Horseman magazine does evaluations of vintage saddles and tack, maybe it might be an idea to contact them?
Sorry, can't help any further.
