Not EVEN worth it. A couple of cobbler's hammers, a breast drill, some transitional planes (Feh!), a draw knife, and a truly hammered (in both senses of the word) socket chisel, all in iffy condition.

Agreed. A big bunch of crap/nothing.

Agreed that the condition of most of the stuff looks pretty poor, but some Cobbler's hammers can bring some bucks, the tool chest alone would get you 30 or 40 bucks (and an antique store would ask 100+ for it), there's a nice pig sticker mortise chisel, that large turnscrew is worth investigating, as is the fourfold rule and whatever is just in front of it, there's what looks like another screwdriver (small chisel?) in with the files, plus there's stuff peeking out of the box. I don't think you'd get hurt at a $100, but that's their asking price and you could probably get it for half that or less. I'm guessing Uncle Frank kicked the bucket which would mean there's other stuff for sale, and the tools would get you in the door to find out what other stuff they have no clue about.
