1856 British Universal Cavalry Saddle - No Reserve
Possible Civil War Confederate Import Item number: 150356533851
I do not believe it to be what it is purported to be but interesting and rare in its own right. I believe it to be an 1890, based on what appear to be the rear arch supporting struts, the rings to which billet straps would have been attached, the shape and function of the sweat flaps and the leather caps on the ends of the sidebars. There are pictures of a similar saddle on the UP forum. It's not in great shape but appears to be a worthwhile project.
