I picked up these Mameita Gin at an estate auction a while ago and now somebody is wanting to buy them off me, but I have no idea what a fair price would be. I think the smallest is Tenpo era and the middle is Genbun era, but I could be wrong and have no idea about the largest.  Does anybody have an idea of when they're from and what they might be worth?

I was told by my collecting buddy that the first one is worth about $270~$360. If the second one is from Genbun then it's about $90 but if it's from Bunsei, it's worth about $180. He said he can't figure out from the images.  The last one is about $45 according to his opinion.

Oh wow.  I'd never have guessed they were worth so much.  Thank you for your friend's opinion, I appreciate it a lot.
