There are many owners of older Macs, who are not "collecting", they simply want to continue to USE their Macs. Chances are, unless you have a bunch of "original" boxes and accessories, these are not particularly "collectable" but they or their parts are usable.
The SE "superdrive" is a little more desirable than the SE. The 5260 is a huge "all in one" (includes 15-inch color CRT) which is very hard to ship and VERY fragile, but some people want parts for them.
That's the sort of advice I'd offer. It's a little off-topic to discuss these sorts of things in detail on-list. But I'm glad to note in "public" that vintage Macs are not just "collectables".
