I'm having an old western saddle for trial atm and I tried to google saddle specs but found absolutely nothing about it.
The latigo holder says "Mercedes 149999". There is also a marking on the right fender which says: "N.W.C.A p. H.C. 1983 HI POINT YOUTH".
Can anyone tell me anything about the saddle? Quality? Manufacturer? Tree?
Thanks a million!

A picture may help?
N.W.C.A p. H.C - Found out via google that there is a show/college? nicknamed the NWC, and that there is/was an appaloosa show (ApHC) there.
Is this the logo?
That's it! No wonder there wasn't that much info online. A bit of an oldtimer then...
reinerspook: Thank you for your impressive detective work.
I suppose no one here has owned and ridden one...
We used to order stable supplies from the Libertyville catalog, several decades ago.
They had good bulk prices on halters and such.
I don't quite remember that was the name of their western saddles, interesting.
