Default What are the worth? Garand & M1903 Basic Field Manuals

Greetings -

Looking for opinions. :-)

I have a couple of Basic Field Manuals - the real deal.

Covers marked "Restricted"

War Department
Basic Field Manual

U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30 M1
30 July 1943

The other is marked:

U.S. Rifle Caliber .30, M1903
and data 30 September 1943

Both are in excellent condition, though they have a "old book" scent to them.
What are they worth?

They are worth as much as someone is willing to pay for them.

Take a look around at some auction sites like gunbroker and so on. You may be able to get an idea there.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
