Default Old cartridges

I have a three old cartridges that all need new stylii, and I am wondering which one if any may be worth putting a new stylus into, I am of course after a really good result so cost is not the core issue.

So here is what I have

Pickering V15

Shure M75EM type 2

A and R Cambridge P77

Which is likely to gove the best results? Or should I just buy a new Cartridge, I'd happily spend up to about $250.00 Aus

Whilst all your carts are OK, and might have been worth trying if they worked, none is outstanding enough to bother with - especially as the suspension is likely to have aged.
Since a new stylus will cost almost as much as the complete cart, there's little point in replacing any of them IMO, unless you happen to find a source of very cheap original stylii.

I'd sell them for a few dollars as a job lot on eBay, and put the money towards a replacement such as the Goldring 1042 for example, which will be much better than any of them, even when they were new.
