You'll find that there are a couple of people that will be interested on those here... if not I am.. but I'm in Australia, not that that should matter;)

Ok, good to know that there is some interest. Any ideas of value? I have some copies that I have considered to sell on e-bay.

There were some german OD&D modules on ebay recently.
They were also advertised here in the classifieds.
Went for $ 5 -10, so not too much.

I`m extending the question, what about german OD&D modules and red/green/black boxes or 1E PHB/DMG/MM. Any interest in them? Prices/values?

In my experience, foreign language items actuallly sell for less than English ones, because the majority of my buyers are both players and collectors.  As a general rule, I get about 25% less for foreign items - the ones I do post, people from the country in question compete with a few collectors, but the majority player base stays out of the competition.  I've not yet seen a foreign edition of anything go for more than a comparable English-language item.

The Hebrew ones went for quite a bit, but then they weren't translations of existing English modules.  I have a couple Japanese ones that are also not based on English equivalents, but they're more akin to supplements.

Nice research work on the Japanese publications!  I didn't know you knew Japanese as well.  Mine's too rusty to attempt to read the sites, it would give me a migraine at this point.  If you can find someplace selling the Chinese D&D items that I can buy, I'll give you a finder's fee!
