Up for auction is an authentic, vintage Diving Helmet which surfaced from an extensive maritime collection.

Diving Helmet is of Asian descent. Uncertain if Japanese, Korean or Chinese. Helmet is 3-light, 12-bolt model made of copper with brass fittings and manufacturer's plate affixed to breastplate. Helmet has matching #41 on bonnet neck ring, breastplate, and all brailes; port sidelight: #41-1, starboard sidelight: #41-2.
Helmet is complete with typical usage dents as pictured below. Glass good and without chips or cracks. Airways present in bonnet, which separates from breastplate okay. Faceplate is stuck on threads with one of the brass studs missing.
Please note: Although diving helmet may be useable, it is not warranted for use as a life support system for diving but sold as a collectible artifact only. Understandably, it should be thoroughly tested by a certified technician before any diving applications. We are unqualified to test dive gear, therefore sold as is and pictured below.
