I found these tires and I think they are for a ford model N. Can anyone confirm my suspicions? The side walls are a little cracked but they look like NOS.
I don't recall if any of the NRS cars used that size or not, but a lot of small cars before about 1910 did. I think some of the model As did, and maybe the model F.
According to Hap, the model S runabout (not the S roadster) used the 28X3. These were mostly 1908.

Regardless, if you want to sell them, classified either here or the Early Ford Registry should be good.

This was a coo on tire size for small, pre-T cars. My '08 Maxwell uses them.
They are the right size for Ford Model N and various non Ford cars that used this size. Maxwell, Oldsmobile, Buick, and many others used that size tire at one time.
They probably are tires from the 1950's or 1960's is my guess. Old ones from back in the day would have been near white. Value would be low unless they are soft and pliable. If they are soft and not age cracked or rotted they might be worth $50 - $75 for the pair as "roll around" tires for a non - driven vehicle.
Yes, N and S runabout, and as Eric mentioned, many smaller cars of the period (1900-1915) used this clincher. The tires look pretty good, and might be a good choice on a static display car. My biggest concern is that they not be torn, or start to tear or separate in the clincher groove. This is where older tires I've used have failed.
The Gehrig Tire company operated out of Ft. Wayne Indiana from about 1955 - 1961. That probably dates the tires as close as you will get.
There is an interesting photo of the president of Gehrig tires here:
