Default Magazine identification

I had a few magazines I cannot ID. All 3 appear new and unused. The flatback has a small amount of surface rust. I think it came from a 56s, but not sure. Are these worth anything? Or are they just good mags to have?

Jack,

This is great fun to me and I'd love to help but the pics are horrible. You have other options?

Flat back is Chicom.

You need to look closely with a flashlight along the spines. Your pics aren’t really helpful on my smart phone. Look for stamps on the spine, and anywhere else. Take pics of those markings. Take pics of the feed lips, and the follower too.

As previously stated, those without spine or flat back mags likely Chinese.
The two pictured together with spines could be Hungarian or Bulgarian seeing as the bottom one appears to have sharp spine welds.
Good suggestions to check spines for stamps, lower sides of the bodies for stamps, pics of the followers, pics of floor plates, etc.
