General Information
The leather is dull like it has been pre-treated and is about 5.5mm thick with 3 "breathing" holes in the top surface like a B17.  It has black enamled steel rails which are much wider apart than any other Brooks that I've seen.. 

I haven't been able to find out much about this variation except : "....the Professional (introduced in 1963) and the Pro Select were based on the B17 Competition but with larger rivets." 

So the Professional Select saddles may be a variation of the model B17  rather than the Professional model saddles.
