Looks like a Turbo, but doesn't at the same time... Anyone know the model of these? And what they're worth?

Looks hand painted, especially since "Sella" Italia is not a thing.

The Mundialita model saddle was used by many bike manufacturers as their standard, budget saddle on their mid level bikes.
it's an OK saddle,but not as good quality and comfort-wise as the similar looking Turbo. Most people just ended up replacing them with better saddles, that's why the Mundialitas are not hard to find in good condition in the second hand market.
I'd say they are worth maybe 40- 50 bucks max. In mint condition. Maybe a little bit more if it has the suede leather finish....
BTW, the "Selle Italia" script is original. The either had that or "Mundialita" printed at the nose......
