About how many pages are in the book?

Jon.

Hi Paul,

post 4: "A very nice DDR(1977) published book"

I do not believe that it is published in 1977.

That is the book cover of the second edition 1983.

The first edition is from 1980:

Hi Jon,

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

Again, Thanks.

Hi,

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.

For example:

Blue mark: how many awards per year

Red mark: what you receive (medal, document, pin etc.), and how much money comes with the award.

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.

To order go to: Frontline Historical
