high polish and impressive early date will impress just about everyone!

Here is very rare opportunity to purchase not only a desirable smoke helmet, but one that is still in its original shipping crate complete with air pump, house and original tags! 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. Most of them are long gone due to their rough use and limited numbers made. This helmet and equipment appear to have never been used, a real time capsule.

US Navy Mark V Diving Helmet - DESCO!

We just turned this helmet up and it’s a great example for restoration. This vintage US Navy Mark V was made by Diving Equipment & Salvage Company. It appears the helmet was re-tinned during it’s use. The result is a helmet that has a splotchy gray appearance. In the photo the front tag has been removed, but we do have the tag and it will be properly attached during restoration. All the serial numbers are matching on this helmet and when done, it will be in amazing condition. We plan on polishing out this helmet to a high shine. However, if you are interested in this helmet and would like it re-tinned please let us know ASAP.
