Are These Chairs Worth Trying To Repair?

Good Questions

Q:  I found these two chairs online for $50.00. I haven't bought them yet, but I think they may be mid century Conant Ball Chairs. I tried doing some research and can't find confirmation that this is by Conant Ball, though. Does anyone know the maker? Also, they have this fraternity-style emblem on them in black paint. I'm afraid it will be difficult to remove the paint. Any thoughts? Are they worth the work? I love the style, so I'm thinking I may just go for it. Thanks for the help!
