I have ordered twice from NARA (stuff from the FMS programme) and was very happy and satisfied each time.

Some 6-7 weeks ago I have ordered some more captured German material, which is now listed in "awaiting shipment" status, I hope it will arrive soon.

US NARA are obviously beginning to feel the bite of reduced government spending on archives.
A British friend was quoted last week 90 US dollars each for microfilm rolls, and 130 US dollars each for dvds.
These are post-paid to Europe.

If you want 10 items or more, makes it more economical to fly over and photocopy the originals. And enjoy looking at other archival stuff you never knew was of interest.

Yes, it seems excessively expensive. But, photocopying at 50 cents a page is not cheap either. Rumor has it that the DVDs may increase in price yet again.
