Thanks, Uwe. Could you post a picture of a (random) page within the book?

I have looked for different pages in the different editions.
In the 2. edition they added some decorations, e.g. "Milit?rischer Verdienstorden/Milit?rische Verdienstmedaille"
Left: 1. edition
Right: 2. edition
Thanks Uwe. I just won an ebay aucton for the 1980 auflage, and was just curious about what the book's layout was like.
Gordon posted the NVA Kalender 1990.
The first I have in my collection is the "Taschenkalender NVA 1958"
I hope, it is the first (NVA). The oldest DDR-Kalender in my collection is a "Taschenkalender Kasernierte Volkspolizei 1956" KVP.

Some great books. The last two I have not seen before. Would love to have a copy of each. I guess I'll have to start looking!
I'm with Gordon-I would LOVE to get a copy of that "Blatt".
Wow gents, I just asked on another thread if there was a book I could buy on DDR medals, and here is dozens! Looks like the children are on bread and water for another week!
I don't know if it's been mentioned on this forum before but renowned Stasi collector Ralph Pickard published a book at the end of 2007 called Stasi Decorations and Memorabilia; A Collector's Guide. What an outstanding book, I got it in December and am still going though it, there is just to much rich detail to absorb at once. Here is the text from his ad in the February 2008 Military Trader for those who might not be familar with the book:
New book now available about the DDR Ministry for State Security (MfS) awards and documents. This book is essential to East German collectors, researchers, historians or anyone interested in the first book that describes the awards and other unique items worn and carried by members of the STASI organization. This book illustrates in detail some of the DDRs most interesting medals and in particular the award documents presented ot the STASI members during the mid 1950s through the end of the 1980s.
This hard cover 260 page book with dust jacket, has over 400 color photographs including time-line charts relating to the DDR award documents.

Although in German I'm sure there are enough German speakers who are willing to help if it is needed.
Hope you find it interesting.
