This page is designed to help you Identify who printed your Cloth map
Clues to your map's origin, usually,
lie along the edges,
atop the sheet, or in the corners. Sometimes sheets have
both a corner identifier and a title. Sheets can be single
or double sided. US sheets are pre-treated with a special
chemical to reduce fraying. RAF and RAF Post War sheets
have either a hemmed edge or a heat sealed edge.
**Luftwaffe Oil Cloth sheets
are not included in this website.
Does your sheet have numbering,
like either of these three
in a corner of your sheet?
Does your sheet say NACI-HO
along one edge?
Does your map have a Capital
letter or Capital
letter and Number
combination in one corner, usually the lower left corner?
Does your sheet have a Large
Capital Letter like this?
Does your sheet have a Number-letter
or even Letter-Number
in one corner?
Is your sheet fragile and generally
gray or dark gray in color?
Does it mention "Heliozincographed" in the lower right hand corner?
Is your sheet single sided and
have maybe 2 or 3 colors on it, with Black
being the prominent color?
Does your sheet say USAF
along the middle top edge or have a graphic

If none of the above examples
of identification resemble your sheet,
