15" Western saddle,great tooling,dark brown

An older gentleman asked me to sell some saddles for him. They have been stored in his tack room for many years. This one is older...I cannot find a brand name on it. It is stamped 1500 on the bottom and I think some words,but I can't make them out. I am not a western rider at all! So I am hoping I measured the seat correctly. If I did it is a 15". I don't know about gullet,bars,etc.?

**It is darkish brown NOT reddish. In most of the pics I had my flash on....in the last few I didn't,but it is the correct color in the last ones. Dark brown.

This saddle is in great shape,sound tree,pretty braided stirrups,comes with lagtigo, I don't see any obvious huge flaws on it,but I know it is an older one so it isn't brand-new.
He only wanted $200 including shipping on it so I told him I would list it in case anyone on here was interested.

It looks like a saddle from the 50's or 60's. It is a trail saddle with swell forks (very popular during that era). Looks to be nicely made. Maybe heavy?
Lovely tooling. The rigging looks like full rigging (meaning the cinch is in a straight line with the fork). Would work best with a flank cinch.

Asl Bubba. She knows a lot about western saddles (Bubba13? Can't remember her avatar fully)

Aha! Thanks for the info! I definitely isnt a cheapy made in mexico...I wish I could make out the brand. It feels really nice and well made. It isnt super super heavy....I can pick it up with one hand, but it is solid and not at all a flimsy saddle. For being from the 50s or 60s it is in really,really good shape. I love the tooling! If I rode western at all I would buy it myself, but I know I wont ever use it...so... :(

*going to search out bubba something* thanks!

That looks strikingly similar to a saddle I bought with no info. I sent pictures of it to a restorations expert, and he said mine was a Tex Tan from the 60s. I love it.

Well someone is going to get a great deal for sure on this one! I am going to get out the magnifying glass and try to make out the words on the bottom...lol.

I'm going to talk to my husband (since I just purchased an english saddle...Lol!)...we wouldn't be able to purchase this until the 1st, I do know, but I will let you know; love those older saddles, and it's in great shape, and would be perfect for the pleasure riding/fun shows I do.

If you take a picture of the words and numbers, we might be able to help out.

Mom2pride...if you decide you do want it let me know and I will hold until the 1st :)

CorinoWalk....good idea! I will....they are super faded though and on the tree so I am not sure if my camera will capture it,but if I can get any I will post them. Thanks for offering :)
