vintage wood doors?

Hi,
I am hoping that someone can help me and tell by looking at these doors what type of wood these doors might be. The doors came off a 100 year old house that I own. The finish is old and they should be refinished. I am hoping to sell them and don't know what to ask for them. I have six of them and they all are all identical 80"x32" and 11/2 inch thick. I want to know what to ask for them.
Can someone give me an idea? Thanks

Maybe someone else here will tag it right off the bat, but I need more of a closeup.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

They look like Douglas Fir to me also. They look like they're in pretty good shape. At 1.5" thick, they are in between interior size and exterior size.

As for what they are worth, to the right buyer, whatever. With the design of the handle/lockset, they may be a good replacement door for someone that wants to maintain heritage.

It may be how the ad reads. If you say "antique collectible doors for sale", or "used doors for sale". Is a '55 Chevy a used car or a collectible car?

Yep, I saw this thread before it had any replies, was going to reply saying fir but didn't want to chance being completely off and laughed at. I have doors very similar in my house (another 100 year old home), I really wish fir was more accessible in wisconsin.
