Marshall T2876 Speakers

Hey I just picked up an old marshall 4x12 cab loaded with JM10 T2876 "Rola Celestion" speakers. Can anyone give me information on the speakers and what they're worth?

Arent Rolas 70's greenbacks? My friend had 2 in a 2x12, not worth bundles of money, but a bit more than the usual £40 greenbacks.
Good speaker.

I found this info on a "thegearpage" thread, answered by Southbay Ampworks:

what can you tell me about the black back which says marshall rola celestion T2876?
That should be a G12-80 speaker. 50 oz "H" magnet, 444 55hz cone, although I have seen it with a 1777 75 hz cone as well when reconed improperly. I have two original T2876 speakers here, both with 444 cones (same as used in a Vintage 30 and later model G12H30 55hz speakers from the mid to late 70's). One I've owned since day one, as it came new in my Randall RG-80 I bought new in 1982. The other is a BN21 date code, meaning it was made on February 21, 1980.

I also know that these drivers were fitted in the late '70s - earl '80s JMP4140 "Club and Country" 2x12" combo that is very occasionally seen on eBay for sale. Each driver has an individual impedance of 15ohm, by the way. Your cab is probably standard Marshall practice; 2 wired serial and paired up in parallel to give a cab of 15 or 16 ohm overall impedance.
