I have over 600 DRURY bricks. I would like to find out what they are worth. Came from an old Catholic Church in Winooski VT.

Not much I suspect, I see them all over, often for free or next to nothing. I'll collect bricks here and there when I get them free. Someone restoring a building needing them may pay a decent price if they're good and not soft poorly burnt bricks. The bricks worth money are the early hand made ones, especially colonial era. I have a couple hundred of those, no one will get them from me, they'll be used for the visible brick portions of some fireplaces.

I agree with the arctic one that they probably aren't valuable as collector's items. However, to the right buyer they might be worth 50 cents apiece. Put em out on Craigslist. Start high and be willing to negotiate. I had enough of the Drury's hanging around to make a small hearth for a wood stove and they look like just they're supposed to - old.

One issue with the old bricks some are unaware of is they should be mortared with traditional lime mortar only, they're often too soft for modern portland cement mortar and will be destroyed by it...which isn't necessarily bad as lime mortar is in some ways superior, and the look of the old bricks with lime mortar can't be beat, but even some masons don't understand this.

I have an old brick in our fireplace labeled N-Savage, does anyone know the history on it? Would it be worth anything? Just curious.

If you still have them around come spring time, I might like to buy some from you. I use old bricks to create a little flower bed in front of my apartment, and the street cleaning machine this year went through way too far over and flung my bricks everywhere. Because everything is still frozen I don't yet know if I need any more.
