Vehicles of the German Military
Vehicles of the German Wehrmacht

This is a complete set of 25 cards appx 2" x 3" that were originally issued as German Cigarette Cards by Sturm Cigaretten and were very faithfully reproduced by Tony L Oliver from Surrey England in 1971.

Cards are in outstanding condition with the exception of round tiny indentation in the last 5 cards at the bottom of each card. Looks like someone sat on them with something small and round in their pocket. Does not appear to detract.
