One important factor will be price.
Looks like you'll be breaking them down and re-greasing at minimum. If so, the qrs look rusty so now an evaporust soak and then are hub interiors shot? Maybe time for new spokes? They are tubular so if cheap and price reasonable, maybe.....

Price is everything here. The gems are the rims and the hubs. You have to be willing to deal with the tubular issue if you are thinking of flipping them. I would not pay more than $75/wheel at the most. Bulk discount down to $50 or less. I once purchased NOS build Campagnolo Chorus hubs with Omega Strada aero version for $150. Another time, a pair of small flange Campagnolo hubs with GP4's for $75. The second set were used but very ridable. Spokes are reusable if they are SS and worth more if DB and 3x lacing.
Keep in mind some on this forum would consider only the hubs of any value. Most look like they are protected with grease. QR's may be problematic due to rust.
Then there is shipping costs.

I have a couple of spares.

More generous than I would be. Cleaning is going to require some work. But I would buy them at the right price.

most of the rims are very common except the "record" which I read as Schreen
in which case it would be a rare bird (and too light to use)

That's a good price for all the wheels, but then what will you do with them? I don't see much "flip" profit value.

Schreen rims were made in Germany in the 40s and 50s. they were wood filled and weighed
around 220 grams. later in the 60s they were bought by Weinmann of Switzerland
