Hi Folks,

You may want to check out the eBay auction # 2200376311. It appears to be an authentic Jasta 11 album from a pilot named Jagla, who served from May to the end of June 1918. Jasta 11 photos from this time period are extremely rare. What's amazing is the photo on the listing which shows an incredible black/white striped Jasta 6 Fokker D.VII, with the pilot posing in front of it. I describe this more under the "People" section of this forum. It's a faded, low-contrast photo, but everything appears to have been diagonally striped, including both surfaces of both wings, the fuselage, and even the undercarriage sub-wing. I think this must be Kirschstein's machine, as Alex Imrie has said that Kirschstein flew a D.VII marked similarly to his earlier Fokker Dr.I, and Alex has a photo (which I've not seen) to prove it. This D.VII is simply mouth-watering !!

Sadly, almost, the album also contains a signed Sanke card of MvR (apparently authentic, but don't quote me on that) which will send the price skyrocketing; way beyond my bank account.

Anyway, check out the eBay listing, and let me know what you think.
