Walt, I see those type of saws all the time in antique stores selling for (asked for) $60 to $100. Are you able to give us any more idea of makers or age? A Disston or Atkins saw will certainly bring more value, generally speaking. Is there any blade etching or medallions on the handles?

Around here somewhere between $20 and $40 each would be a normal going rate at yard/estate sales.

They look fairly clean compared to a lot of the rust piles I see locally so if you found the right person maybe $50-100.

New similar saws are $160 – $200 depending on type.

I wouldn’t expect more than 50% of value and probably a little less unless they happen to be a collectible type in which case they can be a lot more i,e,

I don’t know enough to pick out the collectibles in this case though :D
