Default J-frame grip identification

Hi everyone. I found this set of grips on my parts box and i'm wondering if anyone has any idea who made these? They are for a J-frame round butt and appear to be walnut. Any idea what a fair price would be if I decide to sell them?

Look like later production fuzzy Farrants. Is the nut end plugged or open

It's open on the nut end; the brass bushing is visible.

Interesting set of grips... they do look like the same style of checkering and coverage as Fuzzy Farrant's, but I don't know if he did any J-Frame size grips. His grips had a pronounced palm swell, what about those?

The markings on the inside look like those of late production Farrants, probably by his son afer he passed.
