Default vintage lowboy and snowshoe hi hats

About a month ago I bought two cymbals off eBay super cheap having no idea what they were. I've been doing some research and I think I might have one lowboy and one snow shoe cymbal.

I don't have any of the stands and only one of each.

What do you guys know about these? How much could they be worth?

I put pictures below, they appear to have no cracks or keyholing.

10", correct? And the large belled one is probably very thick, right? They're worth exactly what you paid for them, otherwise, someone would have outbid you

I have a pair of these old 10" hats, but I use them only when I'm playing Dixieland (I like the period-correct sound). They are wonderful and very different tone-wise, but have a limited application. Enjoy them. Never hurts to have some unique sounds in your cymbal arsenal.

Any identifying stamps on those?

+1 on what Mike said as well.
