Default Keyholed Scimitars. What to do???

I do not have much experience selling cymbals. So I got these badly keyholed Scimitars and want to sell them. Worth the time? Think anyone would be interested? I suppose there are no fixes for keyholes? If I took the time to sell, are guys here into junk of this caliber? Or should I eBay and at what price to get them outta here. Very thankful for any insight you could share. Dean

GC has a used 20" Scim listed for $40 in good condition, so what are they worth badly keyholed? You could use them on a practice kit, use them as a "throw-in" if you sell other gear, or just donate them to a music school. But I don't think listing, packing, and shipping them is worth the aggravation for what you're likely to get for them (minus the listing fees).

As stated above, donate them to a school, or better yet, a poor kid who needs cymbals. You'll be helping another human being at a very small cost, as those cymbals are worth practically nothing. Selling them will be more trouble than they're worth.

I like the suggestions above. If you want to go a step beyond, get a brass grommet kit from one of the big box hardware stores ($10). Crimp the grommet into the hole and the keyhole will not get bigger.

Use a Grombal Cymbal Grommet insert on the keyhole if you are worried about it.
