Do You Recognize This Gas Mask Filter?

I am cleaning out Fibber McGee's closet.  I found a collection of gas mask filters, which when I bought the masks were represented as Israeli surplus.  The markings on the filters are in German.  And apparently made by a company called Auer,  The connector is 30mm, and has a strong resemblance to this filter for a German WW2 gas mask.  This may just be a coincidence, induced by similar needs.

If the filters are WW2 era, then the masks, bought with these filters, probably are too, and thus valuable.  Can you enlighten me?

Those look like NATO Standard filters.
