Someone should want them, but it may take a bit of time. Value is tough to figure.
For item #1, there is a similar LS-6L3 on ebay right now. A pair of the chicago transformer tf1a13yy were listed on ebay but it looks like they did not sell. I'd hate to see them trashed but it may take awhile to find the right person or people. And they really should be tested to verify they are not shorted or open.
Craigslist will get you less than ebay. Untested will get you less than tested. And post with clear, close photos so we can see the general condition.
Maybe post them right here in swap meet and your local craigslist.

thanks for trying to find them a good home.

thank you,

the problem is that i dont even know what to start them at price wise, if there are comperable transformers to see what they are priced at, nothing. waiting is not an issue, they have been just sitting anyway since my father passed.

I'd say post them here in the swap meet section with good photos, as Dave suggests. They will go to a good home.
I see you've gotten some prices on another forum.
