Some ball park ideas of what the reasonable asking price for some of these would be. The tont bose abalone TB8339, THE

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

It’s kinda hard to price your knives with the pictures you post. What I can see is the condition isn’t that good.
Maybe if you can post better pictures someone can give you a idea

There is no fast way to properly assess this many knives. Value is based on pattern, handle material, age and condition. Each knife needs to be shown with blades open, 2 pictures, front side & back side, with camera directly overhead.
If you post these pictures here (a few at a time or people might feel overwhelmed) knowledgeable collectors will be able to give you an accurate price range for each one.
Also, as you open and close blades for pictures make a note of any blade that does not snap open or snap closed. Also make a note if any blade can be wiggled side to side when open (blade play).
Make note of no snap or blade play under appropriate picture.
Sounds like a lot to do, but once you actually start taking the pictures it goes quite quickly.
Alternatively i'll give you $500 for the lot.

What others have said is correct - better pictures of individual knives are needed. Your request is somewhat like asking for values on used cars based on an aerial photo taken from 5000 feet altitude. It's a disservice to you to speculate on values based on the little information you've provided.

I would like to see good images of the Tony Bose knife (knives?). The rest look like low dollar users from here but probably very nice users. Any of the CASE knives with ten little dots on the tang might bring more.
