Schwinn Approved Crankset?

Is anyone familiar with these cranks:

I am looking for a crankset for my Madison. Wondering if this might work? I've just never seen these before.

It looks to be swaged (cheaper cranks use this method) and steel. Crank arms are not separate from the chainring. It is a low end crank and I wouldn't buy it for $25.

I concur with @Narhay, all-steel, swaged, and very low-end.

Low end steel crank intended for 3 speed models. I wouldn't use this on a build.
