    Default Five OdR magazines "Das Ritterkreuz".......

    Gents, just picked these magazines up, "Das Ritterkreuz", five editions from the 1980's.....publications from the OdR Organisation (Post war German Association of Knights cross recipients).....OdR items here in the U.K are scarce...so when these five editions came up, I snapped them up immediately. I use sellers photographs, but upon receipt I can photograph each individual magazine if members are interested.
    They are at present in the postal system, I have not got them in hand....I look forward to reading/looking at them. I would imagine that there is a place in any 57er collection for such items.......now to find other OdR paraphernalia !

    Prost ! Steve.
