A.J. Morse & Son Serial #1776 Diving Helmet w/ History!

Very impressive all original 110% complete A.J. Morse diving helmet and related equipment! We say 110% because this helmet is accompanied by original components that have been attached to it for many decades that are rarely ever found. In addition, the next owner of this helmet will also receive the original owner's name and diving biography as well to hopefully keep intact with this helmet.

This helmet is virtually untouched!  A.J. Morse & Son Inc. 4 light 12 bolt model with serial #s matching in all 6 locations. The serial number is what helps date the helmet to the 1908 time period. Included with the helmet as shown in the photos are a whip with air control valve attached, tee wrench, Craftsweld communication radio, communications speaker or reproducer and finally a photo of the original owner! The whip & air control valve are still attached to the helmet, just like the day the helmet was last used. In addition, the helmet does have a Schrader non-return valve on the air fitting.

 

The helmet itself has the unmistakable patina and look of an original example well over 100 years old. The communications fitting and front faceplate frame are slightly pushed in. The top of the bonnet does have the typical working dents and blemishes from usual use so many years ago. The communications cup does have the early A.J. Morse stamping on it, PATENTED DEC 20 1898.

While a helmet like this is impressive on its own merits, having all the extra equipment and history makes it a quite special and unique.
