Default J-Frame Wood Help?

These are not quite for sale yet, so I'm not posting in the classifieds, hope it's OK here.

In scrounging for trading fodder I'm clearing out a grip drawer.
Discovered a set of J-Frame wood panels that were take-offs from something, somewhere, but I have no memory of what.

Finger-grooves, round butt, oil finished. Correct medallions.
Slightly mis-matched in wood color, the left panel is notably lighter than the right.

As-new condition, no signs of wear anywhere.

I can only find this pattern on one Gunbroker listing, where they show the exact same pattern, but varnished.
It's item 717229388, if anybody has time to take a look.

They have theirs listed at $395 & say it's a take-off set from an "early target gun".

I'm trying to determine value on mine.
Can anybody help?
An approximate age would be nice, too.
Denis

Those are later style factory J-frame combat grips from the 1990s. The seller misidentified them as "used on the early target models". His price is also quite steep. They usually sell for around $100 or so.

I knew his price was ridiculous, but the $100 figure sounds good.
Thanks much.

I can't for the life of me recall where they came from.

Also dug out a K/L-Frame set of the finger-grooved combats, varnished.
Found an earlier sale on this forum where a set sold for $150, so now I know what I've got.

K/L frame combats in mint condition will go for twice that, perhaps a little more if they have exceptional grain.

Minor scratches on bottom both panels, scuff in varnish in one other area.
Not bad on the grain.
I'll figure 'em at the $150 for haggling purposes.
Thanks.

One more, please. Set of the larger standard checkered targets, lightly dinged here & there in the factory varnish, I THINK they came off a 64 about 1980.
Looking at maybe $50?
