Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.Your cameras in excellent working condition would value as follows:Pentax MX: 100-125USDPentax ME Super: 80-100USDPentax Spotmatic: 55-65USDKodak Morotmatic 35: 60-75USD. These would be retail values for the cameras in good overall condition. If there are any damages either cosmetic or mechanical to the cameras, this would detract from the resale value. If you were to attempt to resell the cameras yourself, a fair market value would be closer to 50-60% of the retail values presented.
