    Seeing the writing there did make my heart beat a little faster....for me, I don't care if it add's any monetary value to this piece. The value comes from holding this in my hand and wondering if some long forgotten dough boy (forgotten until now) carried this with him across no man's land.... they physical link to history is priceless.
