Need Help Identifying Horse Saddle

I need some help identifying and pricing a horse saddle given to my Father over 30 years ago.   As far as I can remember, it was given to  him in MIssissippi and has never been used as it was on a stand for display in his home.  Here is a pic and there is also a number on it stamped out on the side that is 4151 if that helps any.

Jeff Smith’s Custom (Western) Saddles used to make a model # 4151, which looks close, but it’s not in their current lineup.

Wow.
I have to admit I wasn’t expecting an answer that one!

You still have the 30 year old headstall too…

I can’t see the cinch strap. Is it on the other side?

I wasn't expecting an answer either but you just never know who is lurking at BLF just ready to help  one in need.

Here is a side angle and I think it shows the cinch strap?

That looks like the billet strap. I hardly ride anymore so what do I know.

That saddle doesn’t look like it has been used.

Maybe take it to a Tack shop and have it appraised?

You know more than I do!  Last time I rode a horse was 46 years ago.  So it is missing the cinch straps then.

I was hoping to know more about the saddle before doing that.  I did call this morning Jeff Smith’s Custom (Western) Saddles but it is not one of theirs.  They told me that they have not been around for 30 years and don't stamp a number on the side.  I'll keep searching.
