Also, IMHO, the centerpiece of many maker's marks circa 1900 is a representation of the 'all seeing eye' of Masonry. My father was a Mason, as was his father -- and virtually all saddlers of the 19th century and early 20th century were both German and Masons. Here are a few others that caused me to consider the possibility in the first place: I have more but can attach only 10 here :)

Some great saddle maker stamps. I have the Isador Arth & Son 7-1/2" holster.

You're thinking of this that is from Old Cowboy Saddles & Spurs:

OCS&S continues with this that puts the end of Coggshall at 1909:

All this leaves us not knowing when the Coggshall stamp itself was retired. I only press on this because the belt is machine sewn and doesn't appear to be the light industrial sewing of the late 19th century but more likely the harness machines that were crazy expensive and began to appear early in the 20th. Otherwise the set's construction w/b consistent even with the oldest Coggshalls.
Red, Thanks for the Miles City info. In case someone wants a copy, here it is as saved in jpg.
