Default help me identify this keg!

Hit an auction recently and scored some kegs. What type is this, seems almost 8-10 gallons. If you know what they are, what are they worth roughly?

They're worthless. PM me and I'll send you an address to get rid of them

200-300 dollars brand new. Helluva find!

They look like 10gal Cornelius strap kegs

Haha, now come on guys, I was born at night but not last night!

The lid is black and not metal. Weird turn valve on them that I'm not used to seeing compared to the ball lock valves.

My wife is the best! She picked me up those 2 in the picture plus...2 - 20 gallon SS containers, 2 - 3 gallon Cornelious kegs in very good condition, 1 - 5 gallon Challenger V keg (missing dip tube and lid) in bad shape (stained inside, pbw didn't even clean it up yet), and a 4' Stainless Steel table for 126.00!

I'm guessing those are 15 gallon corny kegs...

Cheers!

So now that I brought it inside and looked real close it is a Firestone with Sanaloy finish. Also has a B 2 etched in it.

What's up with this style valve?
