It looks to me like it's not a matching set of rims. One looks like a standard knurled S6 and the other looks like a smooth stainless. The stainless is uncommon, but not truly "rare". They were an upgrade over the regular S6 rims and appeared on many of the mid-range and higher level bikes like the 3-speed Continental tourist (a different bike from the later and lower level 10-speed). They're my favorite Schwinn rim.

Condition on these rims is everything. Even though they are "Stainless" they can and do rust. Because of that they will develop pits. Also if the alloy is relatively soft so they do dent.
They can really polish up nicely though!

Stainless S-2s will be worth more than Stainless S-6 rims. The last set of matching stainless S-6s I got came in a set of excellent condition wheels complete with spokes, dural hubs, etc. for less than half that, maybe 3 years ago. With non-matching rims, the value drops further.
