Default engraving tools

picked up a whole box of engraving tools from a guy who looked to be 100?? Do they have any value? Does anyone on this site have any interest? I can post some pictures but there are a lot of them for sure

I couldn't figure out how to load or add pictures to the other thread so I started a new one. It looks like these tools were made in switzerland by Grobet A vallorbe or something very close to that. there are over 150 of the smaller ones and they all seem to be a different shape. the larger ones are all different shapes and some look like they were taped with a hammer a lot and then there are some small vices and handles and a lead hammer all in the pictures.you guys tell me what should I do with these? they are all pretty sharp and it seems like a waste just to toss them??
