They could have been made in the 1930's. Do you have the original
receipts? If you do, in spite of the dramatic depreciation over the
years I'd be willing to buy them. Unlike the other cheap SOBs here, I'd
pay 50% of the original price.
Start here for some idea of price.
I dunno if Record planes have any collectible value in the
US. As a UK brand, there's likely to be more interest there.
It's my perception that, during Stanley's drek era, Record
planes held their quality. So even if these are 70's, 80's,
or 90's vintage planes they're likely to be very servicable

Woodchucker's idea of putting them on Ebay and seeing what
interest you get seems simplest.
Do some looking for what they're bringing firstest _before_ just making
a blind listing, however.
Record's in good shape should do reasonably well; having original boxes
assuming are in good shape makes towards the collector side rather than
just used, utilitarian. Again, if you can date them as being older
rather than newer is better...
if you put these on ebay would you be so kind as to post item #'s here (if
that is not against the group charter).
I would be interested in all three provided you would be willing to ship to
I regularly use & have a small collection of Record hand planes. These could
be useful to me.
