Here is a note from Dave:
Here is a picture of one of my typical reserves. I have dozens of them some have been popped but 90% are still sealed in containers. I have no M.E.R.P.S just T7's and down. - Dave Henderson
These will be great for Museum and Man Cave Displays as well as WWII reenactor's groups and Demo teams
The T-7 parachute assembly was standardized on March 13, 1944, but did not see service in-theater until late 1944. Although pack trays remained virtually identical to the T-5, the new single point release harness was introduced. The harness took a step away from the double layered Type VIII black dot webbing and instead used a thicker, single layer 5,000 lb Type X webbing.The earliest T-7s were manufactured with the OD painted hardware, but by early 1945, cadmium became standard. At this time, a mixture of 4th and 5th model static line snap fasteners were used.The T-7 continued into the postwar era with numerous minor modifications. The T-7 soldiered on until its replacement by the T-10 in 1954.
