Maillard helicomatic

I'm parting out my Peugeot and I have no idea what to ask for on the wheelset. It's a Maillard Helicomatic hub on Weinmann 27" rims. Prices on completed eBay sales seem to be all over the place for these, depending on the rims. Any thoughts? I don't have the correct bottle opener to remove the freewheel.

...the locking ring that holds the freewheel cluster on can be removed (very carefully) with some pump pliers or channel locks.

They are usually not too welded on by corrosion. I have a set on a Trek 720 that came as original equipment, but I think the
only value in these wheels is to someone trying for and original replacement to be historically accurate, or looking for parts.

They're not especially bad hubs, just very hard to source for replacement parts/alternative gearing clusters. IOW, I have no idea of value.

$50 + shipping, without the cassette. You can pop the cassette off with a rag and channel lock pliers. I have seen that Concave/Helicomatic setup on several bikes; Moto Grand Touring, Austro Daimler ADSL, several Treks, so there should be a wide audience for them.
