Can anyone give me any info on this? How common, and any valuation would be greatly appreciated. I'm posting for a gentleman I know. I'm going to hit the other 2 forums with the same post as well. This was issued to an American US Army officer during the war by the Army.

Thanks,
T

Actually they are not that rare. I have probably had 25-35 of them thru the years. They were mostly issued to the AAF Pilots and navigators, value $25-$100. They seem to have come down in price in the last few years.
The best ones that i ever had were of the Normany beachhead, (3) of them
thanks
Bob

I think this is one that was also issued to Airborne Troops, which helps the price up a bit.

$150-175 on these wouldn't surprise me. I have seen this one go higher, but as was mentioned they are a bit 'flat' on the market lately.

Realize that this post is over a year old.
I came across one of the identical silk escape maps as the one above. It has the same date, 2nd Edition, etc.
It was issued to my father, who was a Captain in the 319th, 80th Divison, General Patton's
Third Army during WW2, He told me it was concealed in his jacket lining.

Is there a recommended way to get all the folds out of the silk? I'd like to have it mounted professionally, but I don't want to end up causing any damage to the map.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Robert

i would try gently steaming the silk to remove the fold marks,better yet,take it to someone that is a professional to have it done,,,
