I wanted to ask the opinion of the experts here.  I have the opportunity to purchase these original blue prints for a C47 and B17E both in the exact same format like the image attached. In the lot are other drafting drawings of the P-38E, P-40E, F-4U-I.  Has anyone ever seen original drawings like these?  They are all 1942-1943 dated and are not copies but instead actual hand drawn images/ blueprints.  Does anyone have any idea of value of for example the C-47 image?  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Biggest thing to know is exactly what they are. With so many different manufacturers, prints are likely not from the “original” manufacturer. Maybe used by a component subcontractor, or even sold as a set for modeling use, etc. 

 

These types of items can have a huge value range depending on details like these. 
 

Your biggest help will be the info block in the bottom right section of the drawing. Honestly not worth discussing values without knowing this type of info.

The print you have shown looks like a model airplane print.
