Chinon 200, 135, 35 (M42) - Experience?

I have discovered quite a package with some screw mount equipment, Chinon manufactured.
I don't have much information on these lenses, other than it is three (four) 35, 135, "52mm"* and a 200mm.

But after all, how are those lenses? I know that old equipment often is good, but I still need conformation, as the price isn't a "steal". The lenses, camera and some other equipment is about ~$250.

* Probably the filter size, I reckon the seller is not a photographer herself.

Ive had a few auto chinons and chinonflex. All of them good. Especially I liked the Chinoflex 100/2.8.

But for 250$ you can get some kick ass lenses. If your patient.
