I have acquired thru a large purchase about 80-100 gas and oil pumps of all conditions. They are from 1915-1950 and include all types. I was hoping to obtain opinions on determining values of these and if I should get them restored or not. Thanks

If you post pictures we can help. But as a general rule, no, don’t restore them.

Welcome to the "club". Love your moniker. Sounds like it could pertain to a lot of us. LOL
As the fellows said pictures are needed. Shouldn't be a problem. It's just a 100 pumps!

I am the author of all three Gas Pump Identification and Value books. My third book (which has been retitled the Gas Pump Bible because so many people have called it that) is available now.

It has:
Over 460 pages and weighs over four pounds
Over 2300 gas pumps shown
Over 80 gas pump carts shown
Over 170 outside sight glasses shown
Over 25 pump lights shown
+ a cylinder size chart, an appendix with gas pump information,
and an unknown pump section

It is shown on this site: www.gaspumpbible.com

You'll get a better, accurate value by posting a picture of each pump. Books are great for reference and ID
