Default Props - what are they worth?

Hey guys, I have a set of spare props that came with my boat and I am trying to find out what they might be worth. They are 3 blade lab finished 14.5 x 24. No dings or dents, infact they look like they have hardly been used. I believe they are Mercury props but not sure - the guys at Mercury couldn't bring up the serial numbers. They seem to think they are Mirage Plus props. Any thoughts on what a good pair of lab finished 24" pitch 3 blades might be worth?

Thanks. $250 each? Would have thought more since I got a quote on a new labbed 4 blade a few months ago for just under $1,000. Here's a pic.

Those look like old chopper props. They are definately not Mirage/Mirage Plus props.

Look like a Spinelli (spelling?) or Hill to me. Let me know when you are ready to rid of them might be very interested in them. Pete

Those are vastly different prop then what is available today especially when compared to a current four blade. If they are labbed you will need to be able to verify what was done and by who otherwise they are just old reconditioned props, labbing is a very specific process. Sorry for the rain on the parade but these days three blades arent very popular. The do not appear to be Mirages either. I have a Bronson Hill three blade OB prop from the 90's that looks a lot like those. I would say if you could get two fifty or three hundred for the pair take it

What kind of drives do you have? I think they look like really old volvo props for like AQ 130, 170, 180 ect. drives. Give Volvo Penta a shout, maybe they know something. They even look like inboard props.
