Default Gasmask with Zyklon filter - need opinions


My friend have this gasmask with Zyklon filter.

What is your opinion about this filter? Has the filter been manufactured in Sweden?


Best Regards, Piotr

Yep. This looks like an after war civil used early Reichswehr Gasmaske M30 first Modell.
The Filter is clearly swedish.

Best regards,

Indeed Swedish Filter from Bicapa, this filter is worth little as it's industrial and not military. Zyklon was extensively used for extermination of rodents and insects and thus a dedicated filter was designed for it with code J. Sometimes shady sellers try to get money out of uninformed buyers because of the link with Zyklon B and concentration camps.
