You are not far off on these:

95 - FATHER OF THIS COUNTRY / GEN. TAYLOR NEVER SURRENDERS (RING PONTIL) About right.
295 - SUCCESS TO THE RAILROAD W/ RING PONTIL GV-3(?) early-mid 1800's About right. Maybe a touch more if a very nice example.
70 - WINTER / SUMMER late 1800's Bout Right
70 - FATHER OF THIS COUNTRY / GEN. Z. TAYLOR no pontil mark, late 1800's, tooled mouth About right, maybe a hair more with that nice tapered lip.
145 - SCROLL DESIGN W/ (IRON?) PONTIL I'm lucky to get $100 for these.
80 - CLAM SHELL FLASK (embossing not legible) 6 in. I've seen a lot of these and $40 seems like top end for them without original paint.
100 - EAGLE / CORNUCOPIA WITH RING PONTIL, Pontiled, Keen NH? early 1800's, lip has been ground This is only a $120 in good shape, so you'd probably be lucky to get $40 in this condition. Its such a common flask that this sort of damage turns it into a windowsill bottle.
