I'm trying to sell my 2004 Butet. I have a buyer but I need to give him/her a price. Please take a look at these pictures and tell me what you would price it! Thanks in advance.

I would think $2,000 max based on all the mottling discoloration on the panels, seat and knee rolls. Plus the bottom is badly stained. Its just cosmetic but personally I wouldn't even consider it. My trainer bought one about the same age for $2,300 that was in flawless condition, so I based my estimate on that as well.

That's about what I was thinking. Anyone else?

Anyone else? Buyer is looking at the saddle tomorrow and I need a fair price ready...

I just looked at allthebestusedsaddles.com and compared photos. If you want to let the potential buyer negotiate a little, then ask $2,200 and maybe you will get lucky. Otherwise be happy to get $2,000 for it and I would not go lower than $1,800. Or let them ride in it first, see how much they really like it, if they are in love with it you can negotiate down less than if they seem unimpressed with it.

I have an '06 Butet I bought for $1500, asking price was $1700. I think $2000 is probably fair, but I'd expect lower offers.

I would say between $1800-2K based on the cosmetic condition of the saddle, assuming the tree is sound.
