I would bet if they are solid billet heads in good shape, they are probably worth more than you paid. The guy I'm building a '55 chubby for has a Keith Black hemi to go in it. He decided to swap out the cast aluminum "water" heads for some solid billet heads, (I don't remember what brand) and I'm sure he spent waaaay more than $800-900 bucks for the billet set.

You won't know for sure what there worth until you go to sell them.

Very cool collectors items, and the price seems cheap to me.
