Heres the beast: http://i53.tinypic.com/2ch44l0.jpg
My friend asked me to sell it for her, she had just been keeping it in her spare room after she sold her horses. She's an older lady (only mildy sane) and couldn't recall any details about the saddle.
Mind you I have remarkable abilities to sell english saddles, but am like a cat in a bag when it comes to western.
Heres what I know:
Slight discoloration on top of fenders both sides.
Flocking is in okay shape, has some fluff, and clean.
Can't find a makers mark, but has 1200 on back skirt.
I think its fiberglass tree, it has almost a basket weave texture.
It has two features that I am not accustomed to seeing in normal run of the mill saddles, and was hoping that maybe they are distinguishing characteristics. http://i41.tinypic.com/11w3j7s.jpg http://i43.tinypic.com/nvocug.jpg
Can someone offer me answers to these questions:
1. What kind of saddle is it? Show maybe?
2. Estimated Age
3. What should I price it at
4. what should I be realistic about getting.
