Alfred Hale & Co. was one of the early makers of diving helmets and related equipment. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, their helmets were very similar to another helmet maker - A.J. Morse. Hale would produce a variety of different styles of diving helmets. They also produced diving suits and other rubber items. This resulted in a company name change to Alfred Hale Rubber Co. Helmets with a brass oval ID plate will generally be from the Alfred Hale Rubber Co. Helmets marked with just Alfred Hale & Co will be stamped into the breastplate (lower half) of the helmet. It is important NOT to clean or polish an Alfred Hale helmet. Leaving its original patina is very important to our clients and us. If you have a helmet that was made by Alfred Hale Co, please let us know. You might  be surprised by what we can pay!
