Late Mallards

this is my first post on this site and I was hoping that someone could shed some light on a recent find i had. My wife and i bought an older house as is. This means that everything in the house from the previous owner was left for us to get rid of. I came across 8 prints of Les Kouba Artwork. They are all signed in pencil by the artist, and 2 of them say "To Dave". They are all stamped limited edition in ink over a raised stamp that says AWAG with a capital A and a duck in flight. All of them are maybe 18"X12".
all paintings have birds of some sort in them.
My question is are these rare?
are they worth anything?
What is AWAG?
The only one i brought to work was the "Late Mallards" one and i cant remember the names of the others. i will post the names of the others tomorrow.

Thanks for your time,

They're not likely to make you rich.

$20.00 on Ebay

$50.00 for an "Artists Proof"

i did a lil research and came up with this link that might have some info for you:
http://www.gallerydirectart.com/dealer-gallery-of-fine-art-prints---posters-hadley-house-les-kouba.html?source=adwords&engine=adwords!500&keywo rd=%28Les+Kouba%29&match_type=&gclid=CP2Mou2gz4gCF SWaFQod-jgNAw

"About the Art: Les C. Kouba has left a legacy of artwork that has touched a generation of wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts. He has described himself as, “just a farm kid from Hutchinson.” From this farm kid have come rich experiences that have found their expression with a paint brush. “I only paint what I know,” says Kouba. “I always made it a point of turning every experience into a learning opportunity.” So true to life and precise in detail is his work that it is renowned for its authenticity. This artwork is as original as the artist himself."
