    Default Luftwaffe Oilcloth Map - LUFT-NAVIGATIONSKARTE IN MERKAORPROJEKTION

    Recently picked up this map and was hoping some one more knowledgable could shine some light on it's use and approx. value.

    It is about 3' X 4' 3". It is double sided multicolored with elevation, political and military sites shown. It show north africa and a small amount of southern europe. Western on one side, eastern on the other. At the top edge it is labeled "LUFT-NAVIGATIONSKARTE IN MERKAORPROJEKTION." With luftwaffe eagles on either side.
    Beneath that "Massstab auf 23(degree mark) Breite 1:2000,000." On the right top edge "Nicht fur die Offentlichkeit bestimmt." On bottom edge "Herausgegeben vom Generalstab der Luftwaffe,7 .Abt 1942" and "Stand der Bodenorganisation: 1. 2. 1943." It has a key on the right border with air naval symbols, elevation, 1943 magnetic drift and other things. It is overall in great condition ledgible but a little wrinkled with fold marks. Not at all brittle, sort of reminds me of an old oilcloth restaurant table cloth.

    Hi
    The map is a flight navigation map the yellow background is to aid in visabillity under subdued cockpit lighting
    most probably used by bomber crews also waxed so you can use chinagraph pencils for navigation and
    wipe of later

    Interesting. Thank you for the information. Are these fairly common? Any idea of a fair market price?
