17" Whitman CC saddle

Got a handful of saddles on a trade - with hopes that it would fit my Haflinger.
Fail. Well, I knew this one wouldn't fit...

However, now they are up for sale, and after some very helpful advice from my thread posting elsewhere - I have gotten some reasonable appraisals on them.

I will however, consider the trade of any of the saddles for an XW (8"+ gullet) leather english saddle. Not looking to buy outright, but my synthetic english saddle squeaks when I ride in the winter.

This is an 17" seat, Whitman brand Close Contact Jumping saddle.
The saddle is in usuable and functional condition, however, has about a 2cm area near the front of the saddle that has lose stitching.
Asking $300 shipped to the US.

Since I don't know much about these saddles, here is what one reviewer said
Whitman = excellence in saddlery: made in England, been around for a very long time. If the stitching is loose but no torn leather or completely pulled apart its a reletively easy to remedy repair. This saddle is "old style" but seems to be in decent condition (by what I can see in the picture) and is still in use today. A person wanting a decent made saddle for hacking around or for schooling would benefit from this saddle and since its a narrow twist would be a find for those with narrow builot horses (which can be troublesome in saddle fit.) This saddle alone is worth more than the two following saddles put together. If I was in the market for an enlgish jump saddle I would make you a deal right here on the spot.
So, pictures would help. Mind you the tag on the saddle will be cut off as soon as I find a sharp object to do so.

Brand - this saddle also has a serial number on the flap - if you are interested in that, let me know. Google didn't bring up anything interesting on it.

Seat measurement

Gullet measurement - if this is technically something other than narrow, let me know. This picture also shows the FLAW in the saddle, between inches 5-6, you can see the lose stitching.

Saddle is currently located in the twin cities area, and will be avalible for local pick up until I return home to central wisconsin Dec 30, otherwise, shipping is avaliable.

The other two saddles I have are 18" no brand AP saddles, $150-180 shipped for each. search Cinner to find them.
