Auto Takumar lenses

I have the zebra 55mm 1.8 that is a little beat up, still works great though and the 105mm 2.8 from 59' that is in great condition. As you can see on the 55mm, there is a dent where the auto arm is and the auto switch does not work. The auto switch on the105 works fine. I was curious as to what these lenses are worth? I mainly use my super takumar 50mm 1.4 that is beat up also, I can't get a filter on this one, the zebra I can. The colors are unreal on the 50mm. Also, what would a trade equivalent be for both lenses? It is a shame to have these lenses and just not use them. I will attach photos of the lenses and photos I took this morning with both of them.

I bought the 105mm f2.8 for $10 and sold it for $40 a couple of years ago. I would expect at the right time, you might get double that. EBay isn't that reliable for infrequently sold lenses. It would make sense to offer them at the same time, because they would appeal to the same people.

On the 55mm, I would try driving a wooden or plastic wedge into the slot to unbend it.

I'm constantly amazed at how good old equipment can look if it's taken care of. I'm droolin' over here, they look like great examples of a couple interesting lenses.
