Original U.S. WWII USAAF Named Pilot B-7 Parachute Pack and Harness - Dated 1942
The B-7 was re-standardized as the AN6512-1 on June 19, 1942, after the Army-Navy joint use system was adopted. Although packs remained almost identical, the harness switched from bayonet hardware to the standard snap hooks/V-ring combination. Both the B-7 and AN6512-1 remained in service throughout the war and were finally declared obsolete on November 9, 1945.
This example offered in very good condition consists of the parachute pack (without canopy) and the harness with is nicely marked:
