I recently acquired it for my collection. It's in rough shape but the imagery is really cool and very folky considering this was a government drawing. The only identification on it is the "RO Marsh" in the corner.

Thanks. I may put it back up on eBay, so look out for it.

What's your ebay handle? I'd like to watch for this going back on auction.
