I'm no expert so maybe others could provide some advice as well but unless you get uv glass and acid free materials, the paper will age and yellow over time as it is exposed to light.
As noted. I made a high quality scan of my document and display that. Knowing the the original is safe and sound.
But this is just my preference.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

I would put it in a normal frame , you can get them off ebay quite cheap. Normal Plexi-glass is 30% more UV resistant than normal glass, as long as its not in direct sunlight it would be ok, put some acid free backing behind it, it will be fine, its not a Monet
I have several copies of Das Schwarze Korps. Most are put away, but I have these 2 displayed on the wall in my gun room. Both are 6 Juni - 1940 u. 44. Makes a nice pair.
The only time there is light on them is when I'm in the room and have the light on.
Don't seem to have a photo of both, but here is one of them.
You Do have one Helluva nice collection, Sarge...

thanks for all the comments guys, how much is a copy worth?
£25 ? as with all things, depends on condition and the content, the more interesting subject, the more expensive I would suppose
