The breakers are tied to gether to make a 240volt breaker, still 15amps.
Actually, you should buy 2 new breakers because it is illegal to modify a circuit breaker.
If the breaker was modified by someone else to make it a 240volt breaker, then it should be replaced anyway. If for no other reason than it could have been damaged by the person who modified it.
