The price of old lenses varies widely, depending chiefly on whether they can be used with DSLRs.

DSLR Compatibility:

Nikon manual focus - can mount, may or may not meter - moderate price

Nikon AF/AF-D - can mount, may or may not focus or meter - higher price

Nikon AF-s - fully compatible, full price

Canon EF - fully compatible, full price

Canon FD/FL - can't even mount - a bargain for optically-excellent lenses

If you have a mirrorless digital there are Canon FD adapters available. Nice lenses for little money.  Canon FD 50 f1.4 on a Leica CL
