Looking at a used 2003 Barnsby Milton saddle. They are asking $1400 which I thought was a little high. New ones range from $1900-2300.

I'm not a student of Barnsby's except that I know they are well made and balanced.

$1,400 might be a bit high unless: It has very few miles on it and has been cared for well. Also, I'd be willing to pay more if I knew Barnsby had chosen lesser quality leather in the new ones. That's my pet peeve in an otherwise reputable saddle so I'd be willing to pay a little bit too much for a used one if I knew I wanted that saddle and I couldn't get the same quality in new.

If you don't want to spend time and money trying many, figure that into your calculations as well.
