    Does anyone know the Order Nos. of these advent calendars? They are all made by Richard Sellmer Verlag. The bottoms of these calendars read: "Made in Western Germany © by RS ? Stuttgart-Rohr" The first three calendars are by Anita Rahlwess and are approximately 12" x 8". The last calendar is by Veruschka and is approximately 10" x 14". The first calendar might be Order Nr. 11, but this is not verified. The dates range from the 60s to the 80s. The photo quality is not the best, but I hope someone will be able to help with the order number identification. Thanks

      Thank you for the information, I have used sellmer-verlag.de for some of my research. They have a product directory, but I have been unable to match these advent calendars to their order numbers. These calendars are not currently being produced and I could not find them in the company's archives. I appreciate your help.

      I discovered the last calendar by Veruschka is Order Nr. 551.

      The third calendar is Order-Nr. 38.

      The second calendar is Order Nr. 29, thanks to my friend Ingrid in Germany. Richard Sellmer Verlag currently makes a different advent calendar, also labeled Order Nr. 29. They reprint their vintage calendars, so it's possible that the current Order Nr. 29 had a different Order Nr. when it was first printed in 1961.
