I'd guess they are SMC or S-M-C Taks, given the camera bodies... what a haul! Congratulations

My brother-in-law stored his Canon F-1 camera and FD lenses in an unheated crawlspace.
Ten years of temperature and humidity extremes damaged them beyond repair.
I hope you are luckier than he...

He must have suffered from an early form of LBA...and BBA. Evidently that virus is older than 30 years.

Double check all those taks, especially the 50mm ones because the ES, ES II and Spot F support open aperture metering which requires S-M-C Takumar or SMC Takumars. There are also a few very very late Super Taks with the lugs including some 55/1.8 and can be identified by the lug on the mount. Given that there are 2 ES in that lot and 4 55s, there is a chance there is a S.T. 55 with that lug.

I have only dreamed about coming into a lot like that for sale for a good price. Still waiting to see what the dollar amount was/is....
