Would need to see a picture of the blades open to even offer a ballpark estimate, condition is everything. ::nod::

What a great pile of Case knives! I see several Trappers, a Sodbuster, maybe a muskrat, not sure about all of them. Individual pictures, showing tang stamps and pattern numbers will help zeroing in on what you have.

Looks like a few Trappers, a Sodbuster, and a couple of stockmen, and a Barlow, all appearing to have condition issues. The exact pattern numbers should be stamped on each knife as none appear to be old enough to be from the pre-pattern number era. You should also be able to date them from the tang stamps. Up at the top of the page, click on Research, https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/page/research.php. That will take you to the section where you can find what you seek. Scroll down to the section on Case, which is where you can find dating and pattern identification information.

Once you’ve identified the pattern and age you can find value from comparable sales on eBay. As redryder said, condition is paramount in determining value, so you’ll need to adjust accordingly for each knife versus what you find on eBay.

Too many knives to give ballpark estimate of value.
For real/true amounts search ebay for sold listings.

And an '80s jigged -18 or -47 stockman. ::hmm:: Could the top knife be a -32?
