Anyone know about "Persons" Saddle

I was given this bike that came with a Persons Tec-Tour 2 saddle and was wondering if anyone knows about its value and its company's history. It seem like a nice saddle and it made me curious, since i was planning to sell the bike, how might it effect my total sell value. Thanks.

The only Persons saddle I have experience with was a made in India POS.

Their #77 in green wasn't the green I had in mind:



I "aged" it with lacquer thinner and sold it for way too much at a bike swap:

The Persons saddle brand that I am aware of was a U.S. made product utilized on low to mid level U.S. bikes of the 60's and 70's.

Persons Majestic was the company that sold them. They were also the U.S. distributors for Sturmey- Archer and Brooks.

Seems like I've seen old Worksman bikes with that brand of saddle. The Worksman bikes are a utilitarian type bike that would have had a rugged but not high-end cruiser-type saddle.
