yes aldo and dale,i've seen those more recent oval logo brooks, they have a much plainer style to the trademark. the saddle i bought has a logo/model id which is stylistically the same as my early 50s B17 narrow, same typefaces same textured background. the ebay saddle (link in my OP) has a 67 stamped on the cantle plate so not an early 50s saddle. but not a 90s 'retro' version either. also B15s weren't made after what, the early 70s? wouldn't the old logo have seemed very old fashioned by 1967. it seems odd.

there are some more of these saddles from belgium for BIN on ebay at the moment.

if anyone has any ideas about these saddles i'd be interested to know.
