Hi gang. I'm new here, please forgive if I'm posting in the wrong place.

I have three vintage traps. All three of these have teeth. The largest one (with tape measure in photo) is almost 47 inches across with the sides open. (Forgive my ignorance, I don't know the terminology.)

What do I have? What other photos should I get to provide more information? Any guesstimates of ball park values?

Thanks so much for any help and info.

Get ready for your inbox to fill up. Those look like some potentially really good traps so long as there’s no damage. Pictures of pans and top of springs would be helpful. Also we would like to hear the story on how you acquired them or any history.

I'll take some more closeup photos. I bought an old property and these traps are hanging on the side of the building as decoration. The family of the previous owners are all outdoorsmen. I don't know all the history or when they were used, but they have been hanging there for a long time, going back a couple generations.
