What could a Passier Comet jumping saddle from the late 60's be worth?
I need some input in trying to decide what this saddle might sell for. This is my best friend's saddle, so between the 2 of us, we're tying to find the best possible sales price for it.
I know the old Passiers inside and out, and I do really well at pricing them appropriately according to their age and condition, but this one has me stumped. There are so few of these that ever pop up that I haven't seen any comparable sales numbers. Plus, since it's a fairly rare model, there might be a higher demand for it than the usual Century, VS, VD, PSP models.
It's a Passier Comet from 1968.
It has the PS-Baum tree (medium width). 16.5" seat
Panels were recently reflocked and are in good condition
Leather is dark brown and is a little stiff, but has no cracking or dry-rot, and not really any noticable scratches.
no padded knee-rolls or suede. The flaps are molded in the front to roll overr the knee-blocks.
has knee-blocks and calf-blocks.
All stitching is tight.
