USAAF AN6510-1 seat type parachute


Code: S21325

By the Irving Air Chute Company, Lexington Kentucky.  Consists of the full harness, backpad, seat pack with bungees, canopy with drogue, seat cushion and ripcord assembly. The harness is in very good used condition bar light soiling and some wear around the ripcord handle housing (see photograph).  It is stamped with the manufacturer's details and 1943 dated. This is the earlier type of harness with clips (dog-lead style) rather than the later Q/R box type. The backpad, part no. AN42D2013 is in good condition bar light soiling.  The pack is also by Irving, in very good condition with faint 1943 date markings and serial number. It contains the original correctly packed white canopy that is complete with the rigging lines and drogue parachute canopy. We have not opened the pack but as far as we can tell it is complete and in good order.  Fitted with the correct seat cushion in excellent condition. This is manufactured by Pioneer and also 1943 dated.  The assembly is complete with ripcord/handle and housing and the pack has original bungees fitted.   An impressive display piece in excellent original condition. Further photos available on request.  Stock code M21325.
