To provide the best answer here, I am going to need some pictures if possible. If you could please provide these for me, it would greatly aid me in my search.

Because I am not allowed to share my email address or phone number, to share pictures, you have upload them directly to the chat box.
To do this they have to be less than 5mb in size. To attach them here, click the paper clip icon and then browse to choose a GIF, PNG, or JPG. Upload and then follow the prompts to insert it. Once you push insert, wait for it to load. Once you are able to see the actual image and not the word "graphic”, then submit the message. Thanks!

Using my resources to look into your inquiry, I was able to find comparable sales that give your pieces a current secondary market value of $65 - $150 USD at auction or in a private sale.

I hope this answers your question! If you are satisfied with my answer, please click “ACCEPT” so JustAnswer will credit me for my time & work (at no further cost to you). Thanks!
