I just came into possession of a saddle with the 50111 number on a leather tag attached to the left front leather rosette. Like you, I suspect it is a Bona Allen, but with no makers mark it is hard to say. Bona Allen did make saddles for Sears & Roebuck from the 1930's t thru the 50's. You probably know this but maybe it could help. If, by any chance, you have already positively identified the saddle maker, could you verify for me that it is Bona Allen? Thanks
