    Default Niedersuss Serial Number?

    I have a used Niedersuss, and I'm just curious if anyone knows what the serial number means. It is:

    K2
    90101004 M

    I beleive it means that if you contact the factory they can look it up in their records and tell you the exact model of the saddle that they made that fits that exact serial number (model, color of dye, knee rolls, thigh rolls, flap styles, tree, tree width, billet specifics, etc.).

    Default KN Serial number

    Your serial number K2/90101004M means:

    You have the 9,010 saddle made in that year and it was manufactured in Oct ( the 10) of 2004 (the 04) the M means a medium tree, about 41cm's and the K2 is the bigger wedge panel under the seat, where the stitching and seam are.

    Hope this helps.

    Waw, HAFPAS, that's great. I didn't know this. I'll go out & check mine. I've often wondered what size tree I had, as I find my horse could do a little wider perhaps. Great information!

    Default an older KN to decode

    My numbers look a lot different...this is the original model before they called
    it the "Symphony":
    AH MS
    9601 13 WK2 42

    I assume the 42 is the tree size...mediumish and the 9601 the number of the
    saddle made that year but the rest is a mystery to me.

    BaroqueLady:

    AH MS
    9601 13 WK2 42

    AH MS = initials to tell who built/controlled the saddle
    96 = Year of production 1996
    01 = Month of production January
    13 = Serial number
    W = wide channel width
    K2 = padding in the panel behind
    42 = seat size (now 43cm because of the new measurement)

    Hope this helps!

    ETA: I got this information straight from Niedersuss about my saddle, just changed it to fit your serial numbers

    Thank you ENS0613!!
    That is more information than I could have hoped for!
    This was my mare's saddle and she has been retired now for 4 years...about
    time I got my act together and sold it. I have no idea what to ask for it...
    maybe $800-850??? It is in wonderful condition.

    There was a saddle in my area recently that had the exact same specs as your saddle. I believe it sold for $1000 after being on the market for only two weeks!

    The older Niedersuss' really hold up nicely, and people KNOW that they are quality saddles. My own saddle is 16 years old, and looks almost as good as new

    WOW!! That sounds so encouraging! I would love to get $1000 for my saddle!
    So where did the owner advertise the saddle? Local dressage newsletter,
    ebay?? I am stuck out here in the dressage wilderness of SW Virginia so I
    feel that my options are limited locally. I know nothing of selling on ebay though
    I have bought stuff. Any tips would be appreciated. And thanks again for
    the info!

    Here, there is a network that's just for North CA (where she listed her saddle) and another one for South CA. If you have something like that, I think that would be a great place to list. Most people I know don't want to deal with shipping a saddle back if it doesn't fit and what not.
