    Rolleiflex T f3.5 tessar E.R.C
    Rolleiflex 4 x4 F3.5 Xenar grey E.R.C and brown leather E.R.C
    Rolleicord va f3.5 xenar E.R.C and hood
    Rolleiflex 2.8e xenotar

    Which ones are worth keeping out of the above?

    Wow, quite a fine collection. The 4x4 is probably worth the least, mainly because film is hard to come by. Maybe $200-$250. The T is seen as a somewhat lesser line of Rolleis; less well built, so I understand. $400? The Rolleicord is maybe in the $300 range. The 2.8E and 2.8F are up close to $1,000; the 2.8E is maybe a little closer to $800. I'm assuming perfect working condition for these.

    I'd keep the 2.8 F and the "T" as those are the most useable.

    That is a fine collection. Look up KEH and that will give you a ballpark value.

    UK values are significantly higher than the US,

    A mint 3.5E2 Xenotar is worth about £750 so that's a starting point, but value is very dependant on the condition etc. My camera was valued a couple of times most recently last year by a dealer specialising in Rolleiflex's, that was his selling not buying price though,

    You'd get the best prices selling privately, look at Ffordes prices as a guide although they tend to be a touch high. If you sell through a dealer then you get more if it's a commision sale otherwise they'll want to pay somewhere between 40-70% of the price they'll sell for.

    Or names of reputable dealers so i can gate an idea of value. I would say all are in good condition.

    Try looking at Ffordes website, also search the completed Ebay listings. It would be worth paying for a subscription so you could advertise them here on APUG.
