McClelland US Military Calvary Civil War to WWI Leather Horse Saddle 11 1/2"

Unsure of actual date on this saddle, but likely Civil War to WWI.
Major General McClellan proposed this design that was adopted by the Army in 1859 and was a success and continued in use in various forms until the US Army's last horse cavalry and horse artillery was dismounted late in World War II. The saddle came in various seat sizes that predominantly ranged from approximately 11 to 12 ½ inches.
Saddle leather in good condition.
Stitching showing some separations as can be seen in the photos. Some old period repairs to stitching still present.
I was going to hand re-stitch this before selling, but I did not want to do it incorrectly and will leave that to the next owner.

A great Western or Military display!

Please view all photos to better describe.
