Just an observation: I looked at the 2007 Limited Edition Swallow sample at the Las Vegas trade show the other month and was a little disappointed to see that Selle Royal had decided to change the solid rivets to hollow split ones. It also looked to my eye like the nose had been bobbed (cut off) a little too short in that the leather ended kind of far from the end of the metal nose piece. Beautiful saddle otherwise!!!
