Need Help Identifying This Ideale Saddle

Can anybody help with this Ideale Cruiser type saddle? Seller is asking $30. Is this a good price? I've seen other models on the auction site, but can not tell which model this one is.

The model is listed on the embossing, a TB-14. Here's one listed on ebay:

If it's the one pictured, yes, that's a good price. All my bikes have Ideale saddles on them (racing style), and I love them. A cheap Bell saddle from Walmart would cost you $20, so for a vintage Ideale, it's a great price.
