I feel this is way overpriced...

Recommended Posts



I haven't run into many of these parachute survival kits, but for some reason I feel like this is WAY overpriced. Correct me if I'm wrong...




To truely understand freedom, one must know the place, clutch the earth, and honor the sacrifice.

You would be correct...I know these are rare to find complete and in this condition, but I can say that this is pretty hopeful pricing.

Unfortunately, I see them go for these sort of prices these days. Saw one go recently, complete and unopened like this one for $1,200.


Seems like crazy pricing though!!




Always looking for AAC & AAF flight gear. With a focus on Aleutian and ETO theaters.

post-13283-0-23986100-1393105586.jpgVery Interesrting! I just successfully complete an estate auction and picked up a fully packed WWII AAF Parachute AN-6510 with an unopened first aid kit tied to the harness. I peeked under a flap and the inspectors lead tab is intact so I did not open the pack. I'm looking for everyones comments and advice on this 1942 rig.
