3 NIB 1895 22" Rifles made in early 80s (.45/70, .444, & .375 Win)

I received three like-new Marlin 1895 rifles in a trade. They were inherited from a man who apparently bought guns but didn't use many of them. They appear new (probably unfired) in their original boxes. They appear identical except for calibers (one each of .45/70, .444 Marlin, and .375 Winchester). They don't have cross-bolt safeties or any checkering. I have a friend who is interested in the .45/70, which, based on the serial number, was made in 1982. I'm guessing the other are from about the same time, but haven't checked yet. I really don't know what these are worth, and am hoping you can give me an idea. I'm fine with giving descent deals on them, but I don't want to give them away at far below fair value. Also, I don't know how the calibers impact the value. I think new 1895s like thee go for around $700-$800, but I assume that these are worth more due to their age, like-new condition, lack of safeties, lack of machine checkering, etc.

I would appreciate any information on what fair prices would be for these, and if anyone is interested in them, please let me know. I can send photos, or show them in-person. I'm in Northern California. As I said, I may have a buyer for the .45/70 - but I don't know if the buyer would be interested if the price is much more than a current production rifle (he's not a Marlin collector - just a friend who likes guns). Thanks
