The information I was looking for is on Schott 511 Leather Riding Pants. When were they made, are they cow hide or horse hide and what was the retail price.   Thank You

The pants style 511 were made in 1982 - 1983 in a grained cowhide., which was offered at a lesser cost. While the market was being flooded with imports we wanted to offer a the style that was made in the USA at a more compatible price. Grained cowhide was of the same and durability of our smooth steerhide and naked cowhide. The grained cowhide has an imprint to hide scarring and tick marks where the smooth leather is of  better grade and not imprinted. Gail
