The biggest fly in the ointment other than not being able to determine calibers is the inability to tell you that this is actually a multi barrel set, or a Maynard with a collection of barrels. I have seen many “multi barrel sets” over the years only one was an actual multi barrel set and not a collection of barrels picked up at gunshows over the years. Given the veracity of sellers on Gunbroker I wouldn’t trust this as listed. Buyer Beware.

I think it's a collection, still cool.

Another observation, frame is marked 1873 on one side and 1882 on the other.  No certainty that all three barrels have 1882 headspacing, as seller has not included one single picture clearly illustrating barrel/breech gap.

1873 and 1882 barrels are basically the same. The difference is in the frame. The difference in 1873 and 1882 barrels is that the retractor goes all the way to the chamber on 1882 barrels and stays away about 1/16" or more on the 1873 barrels. The 1873 on the left side of the frame is not a model number but a patent date for the cocking lever that brings the hammer to half cock upon opening the action. Many 1882 models have the 1873 on the left side and that is not an anomaly.
