Antique Electrodes

I recently went to an estate sale near me for a 101 year old glassblower. I am also a glassblower, so I was very excited to see what kind of old goodies would be inside. I found some great stuff, and among it were 5 boxes of what seem like old electrodes. I work with borosilicate, and don't do any neon work, but I know I was excited to see some of the old glass that was there that I can use. I was wondering, do people use/want old electrodes? I was thinking antique neon sign restorers might be into them for authenticity, but I really don't know. Is there anything I should look for to determine what is good or not? I know some of them had recessed connections, which I thought was interesting. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
