Must sell*** Used Dover close contact 17" reg saddle

This has been a great saddle and I have cleaned it weekly I am 5'4" and it fits my butt and legs perfectly. I have to sell due to it not fitting my horse anymore. He use to have very high withers and no topline but as we have worked hard and built him back up it is a little to narrow. It is very balanced and has Knee pads and calf blocks. I am going to put it on ebay once I get pictures tomorrow but thought I might let you have a chance first. The saddle is a close contact put since the seat is a little deeper for a more secure seat it almost looks like an all purpose. The 3 consignment shops I have gone to say they would list it for $900 but I am open to all offers.
If I can get pictures uploaded on here once I have taken them I will post.

What kind of CC is it? Is it an Elite? Elite EQ? Pro?

Is anything else included, or just the saddle?

Well I am not sure what type, I don't know if they made those types back when I got it I should call Dover and ask. I think I may need to keep the leathers as I don't think the new saddle I would get would have any. It is dusty in the pictures but that is because I had just ridden in it. Lol I have it next to me now and it is clean. I do have a Roma protek I am selling on ebay, but if it doesn't sell I could send that and I also have a fleece works half pad That is up in my laundry room right now, I could throw that in also. The cover comes with the saddle.
I do have an extra pair of stirups that are just like the ones in the picture, just a half size smaller those could go with the saddle also.
I am just trying to get this sold so I know what kind of money I have to work with for the saddle I want.
Thanks for any help, tips. Again what would you sell it for?

The reason why I asked what kind it was because when I was on the Dover site, the most expensive CC saddle is just a little over 1k, so I can't see that in the 5 years time that you've had it that it only would have gone down $100 or so.

If you really need to sell it, I'd sell it for between 6-700.

Unfortunately, it's a little out of my price range :(

Lol, ya I think all saddle shops are always pricing things to much. I think I may sell it for $500. Thanks for the info.
