Antique(?) Crosby saddle?

Ok, so I got this saddle on trial. It needs reflocked pretty badly but otherwise, looks like it *may* fit the Frog. My biggest issue is, I think the thing must be ancient.

I am having a hard time getting a good picture of the tag but it reads

Crosby Co ltd
manufacturers of fine
Road and Park

Here are a couple pics...anyone know where to find out how old this thing is? Once reflocked, is it rideable? I'll post another thread once I can get it cinched up to see how it fits cinched.

The saddle fits me and appears that it may fit the Frog. I could care less how cute or ugly it is. It has a patch in the seat that really needs repaired.

Boy, that thing has zero support. Might as well ride bareback.
I love Crosby products but but Ive never seen one like that. It seems to kind of round up a lot in the back so that there isn't as much area of contact for the tree. H m m ......

It sits very comfortably though.

No insight, but I'm just curious what the asking price on that saddle is, if you don't mind my asking.

The owner was asking $150 4 years ago and no one has been interested, simply because of how old it is...and the seat patch.
