A.ero (Alero?) 50.4 Crankset value

I had never seen these anywhere on the internet when I found the first set about five years ago. Now I found a second set at a local co-op and I might scoop them up.

Rare doesn't necessarily mean valuable though. I believe these were made by Sale Ringyo, but can't be sure: cold forged cranks that are 50.4bcd and come with a 5 arm spider chainring (I have since replaced it with the Sugino 6 arm Stronglight style chainring set shown here).

How much should I consider paying for these?

The main ring on the left set is worn well beyond useful life. The middle ring also seem worn but is harder to tell on that pic.

On a five arm if all the chain rings are good bike coop price I would say $25-30 for the arms and rings and maybe $40 with the matching BB and dust caps. Interesting cranks with a nice old school look but really only just another mid level triple. so if you don't have a immediate use for them I would suggest passing and letting someone else get them I don't see any room price wise for re-selling flipping these.
