Can somebody please appraise this collection?

I'm going to start by being clear about my intentions.  I don't want to violate any forum TOS, or waste anybody's time who wants to buy the items.  I'm friendly with an elderly woman who recently lost her husband.  She wants to sell his rods and reels.  I'm helping her out and want to ensure that she doesn't get ripped off, so I'm hoping one or more of the members here can appraise the collection.

 

Somebody who has a stand at a local flea market offered her $50.00 for the rod and reel combo on the far left.  Is that a good price?

Here is the entire collection.  Any general ideas as to what a good price would be for everything?

Finally, I'm personally interested in this combo.  Would it be suited for freshwater fishing, or is it a saltwater set?  If it would work for freshwater, would it be good for lunker bass, or just small bass and panfish?  Would I be able to replace the reel with a normal 4000 series reel?  What would be a fair price I should pay her for the combo?

 

It's the one with the bobber attached:

The reels are all older Penns but hard to tell what models they are. Look like 113H’s, 4/0 &  maybe a 6/0 in the bunch. Rods look old too. They’ve probably seen their share of saltwater as well. 

Because of their age they probably won’t bring much, maybe $50-$100 a combo. 


The reel your looking at is an old Penn spinfisher model. Can’t tell what size.

The rod on the left looks like a custom, probably why the flea market guy made an offer on it. Those spinning reels cleaned up will bring some cash, the Senators not so much, I'd take whatever anyone offered for the other rods. Nothing really worth much there.

I'd say that some antique lures might have good value. There are plenty of people who are collecting such lures.

You need to publish more details about reels/rods to say how much cost this or that combo.

Another good idea is to check prices in eBay.

I know a case when some lday was trying to sell her books and had a proposal $50 for eeverything. I was about to cry, some of her books were very expressive.

She sold her collection for very good money, one of her books was sold for $7.5K

So, if you want to help her check prices online.

The small black and gold spinning reels are your candy in the lot ....the bigger reels are plain jane reels not selling for much unless they have a number like this 9/0 and up

If you have time to really help her, do as suggested and ebay them.  Several will be $60-75. Easily 300-$400 if if time allows.  Post on alantani.com too, those guys know worth.
