    All my respirators are in storage at the moment so i cant compare but i have seen that mark before.
    I'll bet its short for 'Dunlop Rubber Company.
    The '3'?..possibly a mold number..

    No I don't think so, I think it is a size.

    It is common for gas masks to be made in 3 - 4 different sizes. 1 being the smallest and 3 (sometimes 4) being the largest.

    That is at least what I think it is.
