They are branded KEF but also stickered as made under licence by AWA in New Zealand. It looks like the sticker where the model number was is gone, I can't find a similar looking speaker on a google image search. PS the tweeters appear to have been replaced so those will look weird. Thanks

They look like Calindas, if the bass unit has no voice coil and a passive radiator, and the tweeter cut out is certainly for a T27.

However the B200s look like B200s but they should not have inverted dustcaps, the originals did not. Perhaps the dustcaps have been removed and replaced the other way round... or they are Dalesford or Richard Allen lookalike units which copied B200s in their day?

Thanks so much! In their condition, and assuming they work OK. Would you care to suggest a realistic price if I wanted to sell? US$200 maybe?

Sorry, I'm in the UK and would not have any idea of the market in NZ, if that is where you are. Obviously non original tweeters will affect things.
