As with a used vehicle, the acquisition of a used saddle demands a thorough examination before the acquisition. That' s simpler with a regional buy than with an on-line one. Usually, however, with detailled photographs and a discussion with the salesman you can get enough information to rate a saddle inline.
Both at the shop and on line, a tasting session is perfect where you can examine the saddle and verify the correct fitting for your saddle and yourself. Several vendors allow this with some limitations (sheet between saddle and saddle, a re-storage charge on return of the saddle, a very brief probationary time - 1-3 working nights, etc.) and some do not.
So what are you looking for when you inspect a used saddle? Most important is the saddle pole. For testing, place the saddle on the yoke, with your noses downwards. Firmly push on the mantle and look for a bend that indicates a fractured beam. Shattered trees are crushers.
Avoid buying a saddle with a fractured beam. When you need to buy a few parts (stirrups, stapes, saddle chains), the cost should be lower. Verify the leathers are of the best possible condition. It is a symbol for bad or used leathers.
Verify the seams-, hard- and tool-qualities. Whereas a used saddle always shows a certain amount of abrasion, the value of the saddle depends on its state. Increased abrasion reduces the cost. I would rather be riding in an old, worn saddle than in an untouched, inferior one.
