The Yugo mark should add some value, but I can't say how much. I just saw a Yugo marked M-44 a few days ago. Great condition, great bore, and a hacked off bayonet lug.

I don't know when they got them or how many, but quite a few were imported by Cole Distributing and I/O a while back. They originally sold at the going rate for M44s but I think you could add a $25 premium now because they aren't readily available. The sling might be Romanian, but wouldn't be correct if it is. It also could have been added by whoever in the US owned the rifle before. Can you post a picture?
