Antique Brake shoes worth anything? 15-30years old.

I have several pairs of brake shoes that are 15-30 years old (but never used). Are they worth anything since I don't know which vehicle they fit?

To someone with the cars or trucks that these go on.
Do you know what car or truck these fit? What is the maker and part # (s) for these?

Most likely yes. You need to know what they fit, and who made them.
From there swap meets, and E-bay would be your best selling bets. Charles

Why are they antique? You can buy them at any Autozone.

Not for all cars or light duty trucks. A good example is, I converted a 1969 Buick Electra 225 over from front drums to front disk. Using the correct Spindles, instead of the more commen olds 88/98 spindle swap.
Not only could no local parts house get me the correct rotors, nor the calipers, nor the brake pads.
I got one rotor out of califronia, the other out of PA. A fellow rare parts vender had a caliper rebuild kit. The pads came from a third vender I deal with in Florida.
These parts are the same for all 67 to 69 full size buicks, execpt 1968 Riviara. Which uses a different one year only set up, which I could have used, if I had one. Yet those parts Auto Zone does not carry either.
Auto Zone doesn't carry as wide of range of parts as they try to make you beleave. Got a 20 year old truck? Don't go to auto zone to get a heavy duty flasher. They do not carry them for vehicals that old. Every one else does.
Auto Zone is the Maaco of Parts Houses. With Advanced being the Earl Schieb. Pep Boys is a joke.
You know Auto Zone probably sells 10% of the NOS parts I am going to take to the swap meet this weekend. Yet people will be happy to buy New Old Stock OEM parts, or after market replacements from me.
When it comes to replacemnt parts for older cars, E-bay and Swap Meets are what keep them on the road. Charles The Rare Parts Hunter

If I didn't have a friend, relative, or neighbor to give them to I would just throw them out in the trash.

I would take them to a vender at one of the old car shows and accept whatever he offer you.
