What do you guys value these mags at these days? I always thought of them more as a curiosity, but it looks like they’ve got some real value?

I paid $70 for mine, it fell through the cracks on Gunbroker, seller ID'd it as "unknown marking"

You got a good deal if this is what you get into and collect, as recent past shows they have went for a lot more, example given a couple months back, a pair sold on GB for $300.00. Basically its worth whatever it is worth to the person interested. Some people know this stuff is drying up and will pay some good $ for it, some dont give 2 hoots. Congrats, M1/M2 Carbine history is very Cool.

There’s a local shop that’s got several in really good condition for $60 each. Seemed steep for postwar European production, but I guess they are actually a deal. I’ll have to revisit them I guess.

I saved these photos a year or two ago and meant to post them sooner. The mag sold on gunbroker. Evidently I didn’t save pictures of the mag itself, but I’m 99% certain it was the standard parkerized finish and church marked. If it had been something different I would have saved pictures of that too.

Good pictures carbinekid, sure wish you also had a picture of the magazine's markings, although I do not doubt that it may have been a church marked mag.

Interesting question.  
There are two München sub-camps listed for Dachau. 
Schwester Pia's München-Schwabing  
and
Agfa-Commando at München-Giesing

According to the information on Wikopedia, the reformed post-war ERMA, ERMA-Werke, set up in Dachau around 1952. So the address does not seem to be related to the concentration camp or its atrocities.
(Nazi era ERMA had used forced labor at its facilities in Erfurt.)

I was curious if the camps had been “upgraded” post war and reused. I know that the mags couldn’t have been made using forced labor.

That auction started at $250. Eventually it came down on relists, but went for more than expected.

There were no pictures of the magazine. Even though the packaging was opened the seller did not want to pull it out to check to see if it was marked.

As it happens one of our members saw this exact magazine in the sellers shop, same story, he would not allow it to be pulled out to check the marking.

One of our members bought that magazine or it may have been another another in the same packaging. I asked they share the marking and construction features of that magazine. The pictures never came.

So this firmly remains in unknown until one shows up sealed in wrap and can be verified.

Also to add, it is believed that it is from Iserlohn in West Germany via the first page.
Isn't Munich in the south?
