The one in the top picture might be too far gone to shave with out of the box Tongue

Closeups would be helpful, in particular of any stamps and makers marks.

The only one I can ID is the Durham Duplex in the upper left corner. Company history described in Waits' Razor Compendium. The trademark matches one first used in 1912, however the No1 allegedly went on sale in 1925. Originally came with five blades, which could be honed by the user.

Your makers name are on the tang, Frederick Reynolds and Wade & Butcher, both Sheffield England late 1800's. They are in rough shape but restorable. If they are family heirlooms restore and use. If you are looking to flip, there is not much there.

As Tim said if they have personal value do a restore and use but if looking to resell and make some coin I am thinking to much time involved and $$$ involved in restoration to be worth it, honing alone will be $20-$25
