From what I have seen on ebay, they are worth $35-$45 each.

Great pieces!! Sturdy and long lasting!!

The corner table--if this one matches yours exactly has held its value and sold for $130 dollars at an auction in February:

I am not seeing any of the step tables sold at the moment--which is shocking to me as these were very common pieces...but I have seen them selling (actually people paying) in the ranges of $50 to 200 for a pair...more if they are pristine.

I can't really make out the legs in your coffee table. There are many varieties of this table and if this one matches yours, it sold for $21 in July:

bid.auctionbymayo.com/.../2666407

If it doesn't match, the best trick to learn exact value of this one (and the step tables) is find a SOLD version of your exact tables and that gives you today's market value. Google is great for this...or eBay has a sold button on it's site. Only use SOLD prices, never asking because that tells you exactly what someone has paid which equals today's market value!

Most people don't use the numbers when researching Mersman pieces because the company had the wonkiest numbering system ever...best to search by descriptions.

Your tables seem to be in better than average condition (just judging from the pictures) so they might be valued a little higher than the average table sold on eBay.

Leather top tables are not usually very popular as they tend to stain easily and loose their new look faster than just wood tops.

I did see the coffee table that Pghgirl listed (sold for $21) and these same people sold 2 similar end tables for $21 but those are low prices for these tables.

bid.auctionbymayo.com/.../2666406?uact=5&aid=18852&lid=2666407...

Here is a listing on eBay for 2 similar end tables and this price is probably a good estimate of value. ($90)
Most sellers on eBay offer this type furniture as pick up only because shipping is very expensive and many people will not pay that high price.

Your corner table will probably sell quicker than the others and probably for $150-$250 but most furniture does not sell quickly and many sellers leave listings up for several months.

If you plan to sell your tables, I would suggest you try to sell them as 3 tables and your corner table separately.
Many times you can sell faster on Craigslist or USA4Sale as the people can see the furniture before they purchase.
You can always ask higher prices and lower it is no one shows and interest.
