Actually, bikes "like that" are plentiful. Cottered crank, stem shifters, step through frame, steel rims, nuttted axles, stamped drop outs, claw RD mount, etc. Bet the seat post is steel too. Entry level from that era regardless of brand or model. Many bikes might have a few of these signs. Its when the bike has most or ALL of those attributes, its really bottom end.

Value is all about your location. In some areas, its about $25, in others, it might be $100. Not good enough to sell on that well known auction site.
