"No there isn't. It is a double-sided map, one side 'Alaska' the other 'Top of the World'.  Check out the attached file for details."

"Interesting, wasn't aware of this. My map is from the October Issue 1939 and the title on the map says 'Central Europe and the Mediterranean as of September 1, 1939'"
