I bought these at a garage sale a couple of years ago, along with some cameras. I'm not really a collector of any of these but since the guy wanted 5$ for all cameras and the lenses I figured what the ----! These say Germany on them.

    These appear to be filters that fit over the camera lens. What kind of camera did you acquire? As background, color filters are used with B&W film. They alter the image in interesting ways. For instance, the yellow filter moderately darkens blue skies resulting in an increased contrast with clouds. Red filters significantly darken blue skies. A green filter will brighten foliage and add depth & contrast if shadows are present. And so forth.
