This ad shows the Mesinger saddle on an early '50 model so I would say yes they were used. That said I can't recall ever seeing an original bike (Phantom) with the B1 seat. There seems to be a lot of variance on the very early bikes. Besides the Mesinger seat you can see what appear to be T10s, the old style tank decal, tires are U.S. Royal Master, and no decal on the guard, V/r Shawn

Were Mesinger B1 Deluxe saddles reproduced? Can anyone advise of the approximate year or any other info on this saddle? Is this correct for an early (49/50) Phantom. Thanks

They did remake a Comical reproduction of the B1 for the Columbia Superbe repop bike....
Oversize stamp, post war style chassis....
looks like that might be one....send an overall pic of the entire saddle top to see the Stamp in scale
with the saddle.
Your 50 phantom most likely had a Phantom saddle.... Very rare to see
the standard seat on those bikes even tho the literature shows it in a 'droooooooring'.....Lol

some of the catalog 'renderings' can be a bit off the mark!

The Columbia stamp looks bigger than the OG stamp, even on a boys seat.

The yellow modern looking material under the cuts in the Columbia covering looked weird to me...even when I saw it for sale on eBay in Sept.

For what it's worth, I owned a 1950 Phantom a few years ago that had a regular mesinger saddle instead of the larger seat. It was a super original bike that had been in storage for decades.
