Someone will be along shortly to tell you that they are tire meters, not gages.

Those are both very common tire gauges. The Schrader is worth $5 - $10 if it works. The Stevens is maybe $10 - $15 if it works.

Here's a similar Stevens #7 on eBay that did not even get a bid because the price was too high:

Stevens was a huge machine tool and hardware and gun making operation.

Betsy, my 1924 cut-off touring, came with one of the Schrader gages (with leather case). After I replaced the rock-hard original rubber grommet on the bottom with a new one, it seals well onto the stem and works fine. :-)

There is a Schrader one in the tool kit and I find one everywhere Tool box Kitchen ,living room, and they are all different because they are from different business's. The Stevens ones I've only found 4 so far so they were a little harder to find. Every box is an adventure- Time capsule,and some of it has a story but I have never seen the item. Well now I'm putting the story to item. Thanks Colin
