Recommendations for a New Collector

Gents,

I have built up large Soviet and Mongolian collections and am thinking about branching out. I just came back from Germany and searched through the flea markets and saw some interesting GDR militaria, which has got me thinking about collecting GDR orders and medals. What I need is now is some sage advice.

I am interested in collecting a few higher quality orders and medals, specifically ones that are made of silver. I would like to get your views on what orders and medals (under $100 USD ea) are worth my time. I figure I can get the much more common medals later on.

Also, can you PM me any leads on dealers or any items you may have that are available for sale.

Finally, is their a good reference book you recommend, as there seem to be a few on the market.

Thank you in advance!!

Cheers,
Will :thumbsup
