Misprinted vintage Schwinn

We inherited a pair of Schwinn World Tourist bicycles from the early 80s. One of them has a misprinted logo, effectively reading NNIHINN. Curious if there might be a market for that one or both of them and what they might be worth if so?

Thanks in advance for any info!

Without pictures it is usually hard to tell but my guess is in not much at all. They were entry level bikes then and are not desirable now. They usually don't even have parts worth looting from them.

But they can work well, lots of value on actually using them.

They seem to be in great shape but money wise they are not worth much at all. But if you have a grocery store or pub nearby they can make for perfect transportation that you won't grief if they get stolen.
