Default old bit - what are they?

I have some old router bits and I don't know how to identify them. Is there a chart I can purchase (free is better) that I can use to tell what type of bit they are, how can I tell the size and what they are used for?

a lot of the router bit sellers on line have descriptions on their sites

MLCSwoodworking, woodline USA, Eagle America, and Magnate.net have online catalogs that can help you see what the profiles are used for.

I think it was Freud a while back that had a chart, but I can't be certain.

If you posted a picture of them, it might help us a bit.
