Default Corny kegs with loose tops/bottoms. Worth the buy?

I recently saw a deal on keggle brewing for 4 used corny kegs, some with loose rubber tops or bottoms. Will this affect anything other than carrying them? Do you think it would be worth the buy? It's only 75$ for 4. Lemme know what you think.

I bought 4 of them from keggle Brewing and am very happy with them all new seals too. Did not have to fix anything rinse and fill.

If the kegs aren't dented to hell, you can use glue/epoxy to fix the handles or bases back on. YMMV.

I just received 2 of these kegs a few days ago. I'm just getting into kegging, but from what I can tell these are just as good as any other kegs I've seen. I haven't noticed any problems with the tops or bottoms at all. Maybe I just got lucky, but so far it was some of the best money I've spent on homebrew supplies.
