Need advice on pricing a western saddle

Hi everyone! I am trying to sell a Double T western saddle 16 1/2 " saddle. I am unsure as what to price it at, since i'm new to the horse seen. I am hoping I am using this as the right place to ask this...maybe you guys can help me? Here is some info on it:

DOUBLE T SADDLERY

WESTERN SADDLE

16-1/2" Seat

2-3/4" Tread Bell Stirrups

Nylon Lined Stirrup Leathers

Black Basket Weave with Floral Carving

Silver Metal Accents with Dots

Latigo

Nylon Lined Leather Off-Billets

5-1/2" Gullet Width

Blevins Buckles

I was thinking about listing it on Ebay or tacktrader.com, but don't really know what it's true value could be. Here are some pics:









Sorry for the poor pics. I just took them really quick.

I just got $350 for a no name western saddle. I sold it through a local saddle maker. It looked similar to yours

Good idea, the shipping on a standard western saddle can be a killer for the buyer on ebay. I know mine weighed around 40 lbs. A lot of tack shops take consignments, check around.

I just Googled your saddle's name and came up with a few dealers who sell the saddle new in the $450-500 range. Hope that helps.
