Not much difference in value.

If it was my brother, let him pick one first, you second, etc, until they are all picked.

Go for condition first. Who gets the extra 30?

If condition is the same, the hard back Seymour and KI-M2, are likely more collectable.

They are all excellent condition so the question becomes what are they worth? Thanks

15 rounders go for $20-$30 in excellent condition. 30 round split backs sell for $40-$50 and hardbacks can fetch from $60-$90. The KI-M2 is the most valuable IMHO.

However, you could get a bit more, or less, depending on supply and demand.

I mostly agree with this...except the R-C will probably bring a bit more. Seems anything Rock-Ola will be more desirable. IMO

Tell your brother to pick the four he wants. When he's done you take those, then flip a coin for the extra 30 rounder.

IMHO here is the most to least valuable (if condition is equal).

30 KI-M2 Inland Hardback
30 SEY Seymour Products Hard Back
30 AI Autoeye-Inland Split Back
30 SEY Seymour Products Split Back
15 R-C Rockola
30 J B Jahn Mfg Split Back
15 U-Q Quality Hardware
15 SW Stanley Works
15 U Union Hardware

Either flip a coin for first pick, then take turns till they are all gone.

Or sell them here on the forum and throw a hell of a party with the earnings.
