Can anyone ID this ripcord?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am new to the forum. In 1997, I found what appears to be a military ripcord in a wooded part of Franklin Canyon Park, which is about midway between LAX and Burbank airport, both of which had aircraft factories during WWII. This ripcord was buried under an inch or two of soil and pine needles and was found with a metal detector. I will attach photos. Can anyone identify this as to what type parachute it belonged to? Sure wish it could talk! It is a dull gray-green color. On the part of the handle that you grab, it is marked 62C4252 and (W) 70. Where the wire cord attaches to the handle, it is marked -1 and a sideways letter T. The last pin at the end of the wire has a reddish-orange plastic covering. Thanks for any info you can supply. Marty Black.....ah hell, I cannot attach the photos because my file sizes exceed 251K. If anyone thinks they can ID this thing, I can email the photos. I am at blackswan1121@gmail.com

Thanks much, PhantomFixer...I checked my ripcord again, and there is no -2 at the end of the part number. MB
