Lens value

I have inherited a number of lenses and I am not sure as too there value -

I have:

pentax - f smc 1:4.5 300mm lens
pentax-a smc zoom 1:4 70-210mm
pentax-a smc macro 1:4 200mm

all in great condition:

I have a bunch of other stuff too but thought I would start with these, any advice would be great.

Thank you

They are all listed here, just search by focal length:
Pentax Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

The first and the last of those lenses are quite valuable If you want to sell them, they would go within hours here: The Pentax Marketplace | Sell Pentax | Photographic Equipment for Sale - PentaxForums.com

Thanks Adam - when you say valuable what are we roughly looking at?

Welcome aboard. Nice lenses. The Lens Guide here has all those listed with prices over time for what they have sold for to members here.

If you have a Pentax SMC F300/4.5 you can, for example, see that its average selling price is $1000 or so by looking here:
SMC Pentax-F* 300mm F4.5 ED [IF] Reviews - F Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

The 200 Macro is also a $1000 +- lens:

Good luck.
