nautical map chart Formosa Strait Taiwan China Sea neat
- Source: eBay
This is a neat old nautical chart or map. This is Asia, South China Sea, Formosa Strait and Taiwan with adjacent coast of China. This is really cool it has Taiwan- Formaosa, Batan Islands, Luzon Strait. This is No. 3176, and it is 34 3/4 inches by 46 inches. I forgot to look at the date on this one but generally these are between 1943 and 1949. This chart may have discoloring, general wear, creasing, folds, purple dots to denote particular places, scuffs and stains on back, edge wear, some folds, and little corner crease. However, the biggest issue is that this has a musty smell which could probably be pulled out somehow. This will be shipped in some sort of a tube to keep shipping reasonable. This was done by the Hydrographic Office of the US Secretary of Navy. However, it would be a fascinating chart for someone. Thanks for looking.
