I was uncovering some stored stuff and in the box was three old fly tying vises and I was wondering if any one might give me an idea about value.

Herter # 9 with a movable head, with a table mount c clamp the shaft can be adjusted for height.

Herter# 9 with a fixed flat head, table mount c clamp shaft can be adjusted for height

D W Thompson Elgin Ill. C Table mount with a movable head, Has a large turn wheel to to close vise No adjustment once mounted.

All moving party freely move

Thanks for the comeback.

I'm familair with all the vises, and actually still own a Thompson (it was my first vise). Unfortunately, aside from sentimental value, they're not worth too much. New, they each cost ~ $10 each. I saw one on e-bay the other day (I'm looking to replace my worn out Griffin), and that's what it was selling for.
