You do need to post pics, asking price, etc when posting a sale on UU. http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?20832-How-to-Sell-Ukuleles-in-the-Marketplace-READ-BEFORE-POSTING I will move this to uke talk until you know more info on the uke and so you can get help with value of the uke.

Just did a search and from nothing I am now an instant expert on George Formby. Sounds like he was very big in his day.
I'm not a collector of such things but I am sure there would be people out there who are so good luck with the sale.

You'd be better taking these to be valued by an auctioneer or some kind of expert. Sounds like they could be very valuable.
