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 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.
