Are any of these saws old enough to be good users?

They might be good users but none are worth that price. In my area you can get any of those for 15-20$ max. Try

I suspect each of them could be good users. The one pic shows an oft-sharped D23 that has a bunch of set, too. So it was loved. The ‘modernist’ handle is likely from the 50s or so, the other two maybe a bit earlier. But I’m not supposing to be an expert by any stretch.

I do agree w/ JCamp that the price is way out of bounds.
