Rare 19th Century John Date Diving Helmet

Just in is a very desirable and rare 19th Century John Date diving helmet. This

helmet is the classic 3 light 12 bolt style the John Date company of Montreal

Canada made in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. This early example has the

non-recessed neck ring and “castling” on the bonnet.

Unlike many helmets from this time period, this one is unaltered. It is missing

one stud and four wing nuts, but this does not detract from it’s magnificent

appearance and originality.

John Date helmets from this time did not have a tag on the front of them. This

model is sometimes referred to as the second style, as the first John Date

helmets resembled Siebe Gorman models made in London England.

This helmet also will be accompanied by a wonderful letter from the

granddaughter of the original owner!

This find is very unique and probably belongs in a museum or top collection! Smoke helmets were used by fire fighters at the turn of the 19th Century.
