In my book, yes. Wheels are getting to be pricey items. Now, I must qualify my "yes". Yes, only if they are not dented or damaged and free of hop and wobble, to the naked eye.

Yes. Looks like they're around 32h too. Deep profile. Similar to Camagnolo stuff. A good strong set of wheels.

I would say yes also worth about 2x plus if true and the rubber tires tubes rim strip's are good. Only catch is the 7speed uniglide cassette so you would be somewhat limited on compatabilty.

Agreed, the tyres and tubes alone are worth the price of admission, if they are in new condition. While it's a good price, it's hard to get excited about these wheels. The hubs are low end Exage and appear to be the freewheel version. The rims themselves are quite heavy, at a claimed 570g. Given the deep section, it's too bad these weren't 28H or even 32H. 36 spokes is overkill. If you're going to accept ~250g gram penalty in rim weight, you at least want to exploit the aerodynamic advantage.

I bought a used pair of NTH 520's for $17, and flipped them for $90.
And a pair of mavic CXP 22's for $30, same $90.
Probably more on Ebay. Not shipping bikes, or large parts.

The question is do you need them?
