Campy stuff is more sought after, so probably less for the Shimano. Of course someone who is trying to find something to match the gold rims on their current project is going to see more value in these, so it is also a question of finding the right buyer.

I was thinking $30, if they included the BB and at least one of the rings.

So they are annodized? They are still just Shimano 600.

Just Shimano 600?

Shimano 600 is good stuff. I use 600 brake calipers, and they work great. I think they're worth at least 50 with the ring. Also, of course depends on cosmetic condition and if they're straight..

Of course it is good stuff- I'm running 600 on one of my fixies. Thing is, it isn't the top of the food chain and it is Shimano, so it lacks collectible value.
