    East German Blucher Order

    Since according to wiki there were only "a few hundred" of these made, I'm probably insane and barking up the "literally impossible to find" tree here, but stranger things have happened so why not?

    I've been looking into East German medals to go with my burgeoning NVA collection, most of them seem fairly easy to locate on eBay. There's one, however, that I've never seen for sale anywhere and would love to have: the Blucher Order. Blucher Orders were made for gallantry and bravery in combat, intended to be the DDR equivalent of the Victoria Cross, Medal of Honor, etc. Of course, the NVA was never committed to any war (random alleged advisory excursions to Africa excluded) so none of these were ever actually awarded. If anyone could find one of these, I'd be grateful enough just to be pointed in the right direction, or to talk turkey if its within my means and the individual's desire.

    Pictured here are three Blucher Orders in First, Second, and Third Class respectively: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/88/Bartel0016gsb.jpg
