Trouble with mics like this is that they are only worth as much as someone is prepared to pay for them, you hear of them going for around £50, but can fetch as much as £200 or even more in mint condition if you have the right buyer. If yours are in the boxes, and have never been used, then i would consider putting a reserve of £200 on each one probably. They are a good general purpose dynamic, with some nostalgia value, I have heard them compared with the Sennheiser 421 sound-wise, but these things are personal, I'd be very surprised if it was anything like a 421, which has a very sweet top end, and is the best all round dynamic mic in my opinion, but that's just my opinion. but TBQH it wouldn't be that difficulty to get a better sound these days, or at least, something that sounds "as good" for very little money from a large range of contemporary mic's.
