Bought an old #4 Kangaroo trap at a yard sale yesterday. Any info on the trap history and collector value would be appreciated. I also bought a #1 Kompact?

Best I can tell, made about 1915-30. It should have the locked-in jaws with little locks to keep the jaws open until ready to put in place. I had a #3 I would grade as "Fine". I bought for $30 and sold for $40. Triumph IMO are
some of the most interesting collector traps.
According to the book, first made 1922 the Kompakt was the lightest and least expensive trap made by Oneida.
Sold thru Sears and Roebuck Co. No manufacturer name present. I just para-phrased "the book".

Kangaroo coil or easy set?
