    Default MkIV and MKV gas respirators

    Hi everybody, i have not long recieved these masks with packs, and was thinking of listing them here in the classifieds, but i have no real idea what they go for these days as it must be 10 odd years since the last time i sold one.
    I do hate asking the "whats it worth" question as i think its a little rude, but the only ones i can find for sale in the UK are on main dealers websites and they seem to be very high priced.
    could anyone give me a fair market price for them?

    the MKV repirator is 1941 dated
    W&G (warling and gilbow ltd) 1941 pack MKVI in good condition with various contents as can be seen

    These are both "as found" and have come to me amongst various other mask via house clearance auctions, so they havent been pva glued yet for the asbestos in the filters, and will be sold as such.

    Any help greatly appriciated as always!

    Thats a tough one to call,everyday is differant so to speak,complete sets can reach 60 however the masks on there own dont attract hardly any interest as i found out when my mask (second type in your pics) went for just 7 on ebay,so would concentrate on the set and just throw in the other as a bonus to attract more buyers..............
