Default Vintage drums need a new home and I have no idea of worth

I have my dads old drums I have kept them for sentimental reasons but I am now moving and won't have the space to keep them. My dad last played them in pubs and clubs in the late 1940s so I know they are older than that the are not fancy but very plain and old looking. The big drum is a premier and it says magna premier big value model the badge is different to those on this site but mostly like the 1920s one. There is snare drum without any name and another drum about the same size as the snare which is a metal frame with clear skins both sides and the name J b haven and sons Liverpool Manchester on it. Any advice about thier age and if they are worth anything would be gratefully received

Post pictures and your location. Drums can be dated and IDed by their hardware most of the time. Condition is a big factor. Pictures will help tremendously. Your location will help because values vary because of availability in a general area.

Really? Yeah, what he means is, we need to be able to read the badge labels and we need pics of all the drums in order to assist you.
Close ups of badges and hardware.
Good luck sir.
