A.There are 3 styles of numbers used through the years, each new style tellling more than before about the saddle. From 2005 to present serial numbers will look like this: 260-721-1212-13 and 20081234. The 260 is the style, the 7 is seat size, the 2 is color, 1 tells if smooth or tooled, 1 is rigging, 2 is skirt, 1 is fender, 2 is stirrup, 1 is hardware, 3 is tree. The next set of numbers is the specific saddle number: 2008 is year made and 1234 is the unique saddle number. For 2005-1998, numbers look like 012606123M. The 01 is year made, 260 is model, 6 is seat size, 123 is the unique saddle number, and M is medium tree.
