I am looking for help in removing the drivers from our 15" GRF corner cabinets so we can know what model they are. I have no experience in this area but did attempt to pull them straight out the front of the cabinet with no luck. Any assistance here would be much appreciated. Thank you. here is a pic of the front. Never thought of gasket glue. How can that be removed?

If these are your speakers (Vintage Tannoy GRF), see link showing how the drivers are attached:

I have met drivers with caulking compound sealing them, and some with some kind of glue.
Caulking compound will yield to sustained force, i.e. using a stout screwdriver as a lever. Sustained is the relevant word.
The hard clear glue is something else. I'd like to know what can be done with that.

Cheers,
Alec

Just make sure you don't bend the basket. Ideally a sharp utility knife to cut thru...

To loosen fasteners that are glued you can try an impact driver to loosen the fasteners.
You may need to support the back of the speaker face first.

you must lay the cabinets on their back supported flat

remove all screws

gently try prying up on the edge of the frame, if it comes loose pry it up all the way around and lift the driver out, careful its big and about 10+lbs

if prying doesn't work you can use a hairdryer to heat up the speaker frame in a circular motion

try gently prying again

BE CAREFUL YOU HAVE A PAIR OF SPEAKERS WORTH BIG MONEY! :)

These are 15" Reds.
Probably from 1957/58
The 15" silvers did not have dust covers.the whole driver was covered in a black bag.
Also looking at the crossover it suggests a Red driver..
In 1958 these were sold at Bay. Bloor Radio for $500 each.

Good investment.
Cheers

Try breaking the seal with a steel guitar string or steel mono filament fishing line by "sawing" through it.

That is fantastic! Not sure what that equals today but im guessing nowhere near 20k
I'm surprised there is no model information on the invoice.
