Here is a link to the Pentax ME Super
Here is a link to the 50mm lens or what I think is it.

The other 2 lenses you need to provide more information, there are too many possibilities. What do you mean by (blacks)? I do not understand.

The filters are not worth much if anything, the camera and 50mm, if in good shape, can be sold. The camera, anywhere from $25 to $100 depending on condition, the lens, maybe $50 on a really good day. The other two lenses, I don't know without more info.

You need to check for fungus in the lenses, vintage camera equipment stored in a dark damp place often gets a fungus inside that can ruin the optics.

Blacks Cameras is a Canadian camera chain retailer. At one time they marketed their own house brand of lenses. Like most lenses that were house branded, they weren't all that good. I don't know what they would sell for now, but they are not what would be considered desirable glass.

Unless you want to keep and use it, the value is whatever someone will pay you for it. Take clear close up photos of each lens, and list them on ebay with full descriptions and be as honest as you can. If you have means to test them, include photos taken with the lens. The camera is a harder sell, but the ME Super is one of the better sellers if it is in really good shape. If you don't test it, clearly let buyers know that. I would suggest looking it over good, get batteries and film and at least shoot a roll of film, testing each of the lenses. The sell it with one of those Blacks lenses. Sell your other lenses separately, unless they are really bad.
