Smile Looking for info on old english saddle- Husar Sattlerei beim Kloster Schönthal

So I bought this old english saddle years ago in a package for $100. Now that I can actually ride english I need a close contact saddle instead of an all purpose. Anyway I am trying to figure out more on my saddle's brand. On the flap it says Husar Sattlerei beim Kloster Schönthal. From my research that makes it an early version of today's Courbette saddles. However the interesting part is there is absolutely no serial number that I can find anywhere on the saddle at all. Have all saddles always had serial numbers? Could this one be super old? What is a saddle like that worth? Is there anyway to contact the company to figure out more information?

Sattleri beim Kloster Schonthal and AG Felsbach absorbed into what is now Courbette.

I adore the Kloster Schonthal saddles. They're nicely balanced, nice leather and workmanship. I like them much better than the Courbettes. Unlike many of the other older German saddles, they tend to have very comfy seats. The only thing I've never liked about them is the foam panels. I prefer flocked.

I can't say just how old your saddle is. I believe these were from the '60s and 70's. The style of your seems to be more towards late '70's.

If you contact Courbette, someone might be able to give you more accurate info.

I've seen these regularly selling from $300-$400, not much less than that.
