    Hi cornishboy,
    The markings on the filter, is it marked A.B.L.?(Armee Belge, Belgisch leger)
    If that's the case it might be Belgian, or at least the filter might be.

    Regards,

    Hi, its a post WW2 German GM-54, more specifically an earlier variant because of the type of filter thats included with it. As for the value, they are worth between 20 and 35, never seen one sell for higher than that.

    Hopefully this helps

    Thanks

    Hi Gasmask,
    Could it be that the filter was a belgian post war production?
    Or does the abreviation A.B.L. means something else in german?
    I'm asking because the inscription on the filter matches belgian military markings.

    Regards,

    The same filter design was used on both early GM54's and French/Belgian ANP M51's so it could be a possibility that the filter has been mixed with a german mask and cannister due to their similarity. Simon, if you're able to get any photos of the filters markings that might be useful in getting a possitive identification

    Thanks
