They look really good. Better than most of my first 10 or 20. I'd price those between $20 and $35, depending on the buyer and depending on where I'm trying to sell it.

I think you are doing a good job though i'm only at about pen 30 or so myself. I sell my slimlines for $15 each and use a few coats of shellawax for the finish. I have heard mixed reviews on shellawax and its durability but if I am selling the pen for only $15 I do not feel too bad if after a year the finish starts to wear, and I doubt my customers would either, If I was charging $30 then I would try for a CA finish or something equally durable. I have found that people like the pens I have made with bumps or curves in them the most and they often think they are more comfortable. My favorite of yours is the one with lots of curves and bumps in it, I might charge more for that if it was more work to make.
