These are at an estate sale. No idea how much they want, sale hasn't started yet. There are no pictures of other tools at the sale, so I think it's a bit odd to see these.

I'm not a plane user, so I have no idea if any of these are any good or special. I want to learn more about the different types, get a decent assortment, and start using them.

Can anyone tell from the picture if any of these are worth going to look at?

Hard to tell from the pic, but they both look like #5 1/2 planes. I am not completely familiar with the history of the numbering system, but a #5 1/2 would be considered a decent size as a multi-purpose plane.The same model was made by Stanley, Bailey, Clifton and others. Countless others have been made by knockoff companies, so garbage, some outstanding.
