    Long story short, I want to figure out how much they are worth so I know how much to offer for them. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.

    How did you gain possession of them?

    You clearly didn't buy them and they don't look particularly old. If you found them somewhere, I think you should make at least a small attempt to return them.

    Do you know what brand they are?

    I said in my first post, reread it. I'm buying them(from my brother-in-law), he said they're costas but I can't find any costas with that logo. I want to know how much to offer for them, I don't want to get screwed and don't want to screw him either. [edit] so I took a few pics of them and posted them here for help IDing them...

    No, you actually didn't:
    Your brother-in-law doesn't know what they are? I don't think they are Costas; the logo doesn't look right. Low ball him because they could be knock-offs.

    I said I wanted to know what they're worth to know what to offer for them, which would mean I'm buying them. Why would I buy something I found? All the background of who I'm buying them from has no bearing on what brand they are.

    So do anyone know what company has that logo?

    They're definitely not Costas. Pretty sure they're Peppers. Worth about $35 brand new.

    Thanks a ton; but I'm confused, are they worth a few hundred or like $20?

    I was kidding about the habaneros. The sunglasses appear to be worth next to nothing. FWIW. Feel free to follow the links or play with google yourself, then you'll learn everything you want to know, Padawan.

    The coke in the background is probably worth more

    Fair enough, I still like the way they look so I'll see what happens. It's always good to have a pair of throw aways.

    I tried to google them, found the peppers place, but then when I tried to look for habanaros I couldn't find anything. My knowledge of sunglasses is; go to sunglass hut, leave with sunglasses, I've never had to know brands or anything.

    I see a tissue, a straw and an emergency-heart-medicine type bottle in that background.

    Do people keep coke in tiny plastic pill bottles like that? I have powdered reagents and fillers - and man what a mess those are around plastic. Static makes the powder fly around something fierce. Does this not happen with coke?

    And if that is coke, why advertise this? Considering the OP didn't even acknowledge posts inquiring about it leaves me a bit suspicious.

    Well, anyhow, enjoy!

    The OP did acknowledge it, but has since deleted his posts

    I didn't, but thanks for playing.

    [edit] FWIW: If it was powder it wouldn't be some little half-ball...

    Thank you for not being blind. (it's a napkin, from McD's like the straw, not tissue, I took the picture on my iphone; so not your fault for by being able to tell)

    If you Google "Snuff Keychain" the first image is this:

    Pretty similar.
    Combine that with the straw, the white thing that looks like a substance in a bag, and even the proximity to Miami and it makes you wonder.
    It's all good though, I ride the white pony too. :)
