Since it looks to have pretty nice frame you can probably get $15 or so for it here or on Ebay there are people out there that buy these and rebuild them with new leather.

$15 is optimistic. Yes, the frame can be reused, but it's a very cheap frame and probably very small. If you can find someone who wants a recovered leather saddle, he probably wants it on a better frame.
