Is this the original saddle?

Hey, just bought an '83 Schwinn Super Sport off craigslist. It's in perfect condition and pretty much everything on it is original.

I am wondering if anyone knows what the original saddles were on these bikes. It has an older-looking black "Système" saddle on it right now. I am going to replace the saddle either way, but if this is the original, I want to make sure I don't get rid of it.

I can post a picture of it later if needed. Thanks.
