    Default Devoucoux stamps?

    I have a saddle in my possession with the following stamps:

    SOCOA
    1214 98
    Arcade Normale
    16.5 2

    The only stamp I am certain of is the 16.5 for the seat size.
    Does anyone know what the other stamps mean?

    Thanks!

    The "2" following the 16.5 is the flap size. 2 is their "standard" flap size.

    "Normale" is a medium tree.

    Does anyone know what SOCOA stamped on a Devoucoux jumping saddle means?

    1214 98?

    Thanks...do you happen to know what
    the stamp SOCOA means?
    1214 98?

    Do any of the numbers represent year of manufacture?

    Thanks again!

    Socoa is the model of saddle. A Devoucoux Socoa. I think that the other number is the serial number, but I'm not positive.

    As someone else said, Socoa is the model. The numbers mean that it was the 1,214th saddle made in 1998.

    yep and it's a 16.5" with a flap 2 and a normal tree ( that's what ARCADE NORMALE stands for)

    Here you go:

    SOCOA = model name
    1214 98 = serial number and I believe year manufactured
    Arcade Normale = tree size, normal/medium
    16.5 = seat size
    2 = flap size

    Hope that helps

    1. I didn't know there was a stamp, silly me.
    2. I wonder what year mine was made...

    My stamp is:
    Biarritz - Model
    654 B - ?
    Arcade Normale - Tree
    175 2 - 17.5 size
    Made in France
    USA

    Was my saddle made BC? Before Christ? I know it was used but its in great condition!

    Default Devoucoux serial number

    Hilarious--Before Christ! Mine is: SO 98 1

    Does this mean it was the first saddle made in 1998? There's nothing else there to describe the flap....but it is 13 inches long. Any ideas?

    It means it's a 1998 model with a #1 flap--that's their short flap configuration. #2 is their standard flap.

    The Devoucoux notation has grown more complex over time. The older saddles don't have as much info inscribed on them.
