Scarcity & value of early FA limiteds & colored bags

I recently acquired two early FA limited lenses (31 & 43) with original colored leather pouches. I'm interested in knowing how rare these are, how frequently they come available and how much of a premium (if any) over newer copies these lenses would be likely to fetch.

I have the same as you,
31ltd in red bag, boxed and all paperwork etc
43ltd in brown bag, only with bag and caps
These days, they are getting hard to find. All the new ones have black bags. I don't think there is any extra value to them at the moment, but I believe that few years down the line, colectors would pay premium prices for good samples of these arely ltds copies.
