Pics are too small to get a sense of what's there or what shape it's in.

Here is a starting point: 30 pieces x 5 lbs. = $10 scrap value, or less.

Depends on the shape they are in. The Ones with the wooden handles are probably made in Taiwan. Most of the DO's I've seen in antique stores sell for around $45 apiece. Can't tell if the skillets are of a collectible nature. It would be worth driving over there and checking them out.

They are rusty enough to have pitting but still worth the drive to find out.

IMO, the lids alone are worth that much.

Looks like there are about 25 pieces there . For $100 that's just $4 per piece . Doesn't seem expensive , as long as they are restorable .

As long as there's not too much pitting on them I say it's worth a shot. Some of the those pans look like they'd be goodwill bound but if you pull out 6 good pieces I'd say you won.
