I've got a drawer full of old ligatures and while most are generic, I have a few I am not certain about and would appreciate if anyone could help me out with some IDs, as well as valuation (if there is any) so I can add a few of them to my website if they something worthwhile. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!

Ligature 1:



Ligature 2:



Ligature 3 (this one reads "A. Page, T, NY"):

I've never seen any of them, but they are way cool!

I really dig these old ligs with funky designs and HIGH QUALITY METAL that doesn't break.

I have a few of the #2 style, and I gave a couple to friends already just for kicks, and they really liked them. I have heard of the vintage three-band king ligatures, but these aren't marked anywhere.

I had a really neat Page bari/bass ligature a while ago with a Otto Link style screwplate at the bottom, but that now belongs to Bootman along with the Conn bari/bass piece that was with it.

The H ligature, I have no clue. Hawkes & Son? Not Harrison, right? One thing is for sure, the metal on that ligature is about twice as thick as most other ligatures.

Would you be willing to sell me one or two of em? I really love mine, even with the missing screw.

The middle one looks kind of like a Selmer lig, but it obviously isn't.
