How much is stainless steel set worth?

My wife inherited a stainless steel cookware set a few years ago. We don't have a use for it so we're planning to sell it on Craigslist but have no idea what it's worth. If I look on Amazon they go for $100 to $300. Can any of you give me a clue as to what I should ask?

here are a couple of pictures:

on the side they say "Craftsman Classics Cookware - TRI-PLY T304 Stainless Steel"
thanks

What brand cookware is it? There should be a makers mark on it somewhere.

made by the West Bend company of Wisc. USA ... trademark was never granted as the company went sec 8. date is about 1989. value? none unless someone collects it. Put it up on ebay and see what happens. There may be real interest out there.

When you list it, you might want to include at least one photo of one mark on the bottom, size of each pan (usually in quart in the US), and take pics of the interior of any that are scratched, etc. Or, if you have a friend who is starting out, you could gift the set to that person or donate it to a local group that helps people get back on their feet.

As a reseller of used stuff, if I wanted it to move, I'd describe it well and ask $50, maybe a bit more. Used cookware of this sort is probably worth more than you can get someone to pay. I think you'd do better on eBay, if you don't mind the more elaborate process.

Section 8 is a federal housing assistance program for the poor.

I think you'd be lucky to get $50.

Section 8 is a federal housing assistance program for the poor. It was also a discharge condition from the military (looney). I was just giving what I found on the trademark info site.

There's no Chapter 8 bankruptcy, but it's sometimes said that some entity "went Section 8," because Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution is the one that provides for enacting laws regulating bankruptcy.
