Help to identify a Brooks saddle

Can anyone tell me what the exact model of this Brooks saddle is? It says either "B 18" or "B 81" on the underside. Can't find anything online with these numbers (other than a massive womans saddle called a B18). Any help appreciated.

Does it say Brooks Professional along the side?

It looks like a Professional to me.

1981 Brooks Professional.

EDIT: B= second quarter (April-June) 1981 - thanks to Tony Colegrave for the correction.
