What kind are they? One of our fellows asked a similar question here: Uncommon Hook Supplier?
These hooks are Gaelic Supreme Harrison Bartleet Blind eyes.
You can get them from Stone River outfitters, John McLain at feathers MC, and Aaron Ostoj at AOfeathers. Not sure where to get them in UK.

Older flies fetch more money if they are authentic, and it also depends on the the tyer too.
