WWII AAF EVASION MAP?

Recommended Posts

My understanding is that these issued evasion maps all had unfinished edges, as does mine from ETO.

 

Just got this one in and not only are the edges cleanly finished but the material doesn't look or feel like silk; it feels almost like the slightly rubberized/plasticized NGS maps of National Parks.

However, dated 1945 and perhaps the material and production had improved?

 

Since it was listed as original WWII, I want to get this clarified ASAP

 

Opinions?

That is probably the most common escape map around. Its a rayon type material made in the USA as far as I know. Just about all the European escape maps (with a couple exceptions) were made in England. As far as I know no one has copied that map yet.
