uv filters

Hi, I wonder if anyone can advise me? I have acquired some Peachtree uv lenses from my late uncle but don`t need them. Do people use them? (i cant find any info on peachtree) and should I ebay them, carboot them or donate them? Any advice please.
Thankyou

Never heard of Peachtree, but people do use UV filters. They're not generally high value items, and with an obscure brand I doubt you'd be able to get very much for them.

Peachtree Marketing was a purveyor of inexpensive mediocre quality products in the 1970s and into the 1980s. Nothing the sold was good for much. What you might find useful is to pull the glass out of the filters and mount the rings onto any lenses they fit so that on the off chance you drop a lens the ring will take the brunt of the impact.

What a good idea for the real cheap filters.
