Depeds on how bad the condition is. You might wanna try the Buy and Sell Forums too
i'm not really sure whether it's still in working conditions or not. kyocero 28-80mm Macro lens might be still in working condition but i'm not sure whether it's mouldy or what. any place to find out? if not i will be keeping it or using it as paperweight as what espn said =.= :cry:

Perhaps you could post some photos so we can identify them?

Yah, you never know
One of them may be a Hongchi (China made)
I have heard mint Hongchi is now worth about ½ Million Sing$.

Rich billionaires in China now collecting. Extremely rare.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but that looks like a regular production cam.

Perhaps you could try Cash Converter, The Camera Workshop or any of the 2nd hand dealers at/ard Peninsula area? But be prepared for a very very low price.

Alternatively, e-bay might bring you better luck! Someone in another country might want it badly enough to pay a better price! ;)

I think before u put them up for sale, u have to service/clean/repair them first, right? Be prepared for high servicing fees, depending on how bad the condition is. If the mould has been there for some time already, then I think ... well, better ask the experts at the workshop :dunno:
