This is as close as I can get to the original pommel bags shown in PI.

Howdy Skeet,

I take slight exception with Marshall Will. You have a great eye for CREATING an original. Beautiful work! If I only had a pommel.

I still own those originals Skeeter and the Main & Winchester saddle they are pictured on.  I traded for them more then 30 years ago.  A spur collector friend of mine had just bought them off a ranch south of Salmon, Idaho.  They were hanging is his tack shed.  I traded a pair of hand carved R.T. Frazier spur straps for these bags.  Your reproduction is very close.

That is amazing in itself. Love knowing these old rigs are in good hands.
