Well I am the top bidder on this for $10.50. About $25 when you add shipping and syrupbucks conversion.
How good are these? Should I get so none else to bid if it's shit?

That mask will be good against smoke and irritants but I wouldn't trust it against anything more serious.
What is it rated for? Was it just to give soldier confidence as the go to their deaths? Seems bretty Russian to me.
Also saw this "RSH-4 ,PRWU,SHMS Soviet gas mask very rare-original" won't buy it but it's $24.80 for anyone interested.
When new, it would have been able to stand up to virtually anything. However, time has passed and small cracks may have developed due to poor handling, improper storage, etc.
Like I said before, this mask will work fine against anything you are likely to encounter. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I seriously doubt that you're going to stroll into a room filled with VX.
Those masks run into the same issues as your first mask, plus they're less comfortable. They look cool, though.
That's a German Drager, right? Good mask if you can find one for cheap.
If you haven't sunk some serious time into learning about NBC, and specifically detection and recon procedures, a gas mask won't do shit for you.
And if you have spent that time, you wouldn't need to be asking here.
Buying surplus masks is a fine hobby, but don't expect it to actually be practical.

Seems pretty typical of any nation. If you need CRBN you're fairly fucked if you didn't have it on already.
