A chute is a feature of rivers. It is a new short channel that cuts across the neck of land separating the two ends of an river oxbow. Chutes form when rivers contain a lot of energy from high volume flow and they cant be bothered to take the long way around. They essentially 'jump the curb' and cut a new short channel, called a chute.

Need to know more information - is it a parachute packed for a paratrooper, a pilot's survival chute, a cargo chute, an emergency seat chute, or ???? But basic answer is - a pilot's chute or a paratrooper's chute would definitely be worth plenty! Cargo chutes are generally of much less collector interest.
