They are a bit rough for that kind of money. I am on the Klipsch forum all the time A really excellent pair can bring $900.00 but those need at least 300 dollars worth of veneer plus the labor. I'd go $325 at most for those.

Yeah, $325-$350 tops in that condition. Those have seen some "rough" times IMHO. Either in handling or environment, so I'd be extra cautious. Look closely at the driver surrounds (most likely foam) to check for wear or signs of replacement. And, like Paul suggests, listen to them. I'd suggest one at a time and then both together.
If all appears to be fine (the surrounds), they sound fine and you don't have to spend what they are asking.... those would be fun (and quite easy with the square, flat surfaces) to re-veneer in some exotic veneer. What a conversation piece you'd have then. Not to mention a lot of fun.

Klipsch Cornwall (like all other Heritage line) have never used foam. Paper. Unless flooded or something like that, they last a very very very long time. I have some from 1973 and they still appear new.
It's a good thing. Foam really sucks for durability.
