Schwinn Touring Saddle Bag 00036 Help With Value Please

Hi, I have a Schwinn touring saddle bag 00036 I bought when I was a kid, around 1969-71. It,s in great shape could someone tell me a value for it. Any help would be so GREATLY appreciated. There is one strap missing no dry rot at all all of the stitching is good, there is one rub spot on a corner and on the inside but nothing anywhere goes through all the way no rips the inside in a little dirty as the photo's show. I took really good photo's to show exactly what I have.
Thanks VERY Much, Bill in Michigan
I will try to enter a link to photobucket I hope it works I am kind of new at this so please bear with me and Thank you again.

It cost $5.49 back in 1970: Schwinn 1970 Diamond Jubilee -- Bags, Baskets and Baby Seats

That would be equal to $33.10 in 2014.

Thanks very much, I remember I saved from my paper route to get it lol. Do you know how much it would be worth today to a Schwinn enthusiast?
Thanks again

I would bet somewhere between $20-50 to the right person. I sold a smaller, white, Schwinn Approved saddle bag from that era (a bit better shape - no missing strap or rub marks) for $30 shipped a couple of years ago.

Thanks, Do you think $50.00 firm would be fair for the bag?

Not sure if it still exists, but I sold mine via a Schwinn bike forum.
