Question Question about 40 yr old Oberhamer skates

I posted this in the general forum, but someone suggested I post in here.

I'm looking to see how much some 40 yr old vintage Oberhamer ice skates would go for. I found a web site that has vintage Oberhamer roller skates (http://www.skates.com/old-roller-skates-s/79.htm) and the suede ones went for pretty high, around $260-$350. These ones are made of leather. I found someone selling the same exact ones on ebay and they placed them for like $200 or $300. They said they found that price from their local ice rink, but I've gotten mixed feedback, some saying they weren't worth much at all. The site also says they belong in a museum and I figure they would probably be great in the hands of a collector. I'm looking for someone's idea of a price so I can eventually sell them on ebay or craigslist.

Oberhamer size 6 M with Sheffield Steel (Boot made in St. Paul, USA, blade made in England)
Style 477, 3757
White with black marks from wear and handling. The tongue padding on one of them has been disconnected from it half way down. They weren't used much at all. My grandma said they were used about half a dozen times and I used them like twice when I was little.
