Nation's Attic's last Diving Into History auction for 2021 was held on Saturday, December 4th, 2021. This event was a memorable one full of unique and, in some cases, one-of-a-kind items. The auction consisted of multiple collections from individuals and businesses.

Hardhat equipment and related diving gear used by the Divers Academy International technical school will be featured in this sale. A pristine US Navy Mark V diving helmet purchased from DESCO in 1977 that never was used is one of the many treasures from this institution. A large number of diving helmet parts, fittings, and other equipment used in training countless commercials divers from 1977 into the 21st Century will be offered.

Antique diving helmets from A.J. Morse, DESCO, Craftsweld, Siebe Gorman, Heinke, rare knives, books, and photos from multiple collections around the globe will also be available. Maritime artifacts, rare documents, and even a collection of authentic Megalodon teeth will round out the sale.

Shipping to any point in the world is available, and professional packing on all items is done in-house. Nation's Attic is the largest dealer and auctioneer of authentic antique and vintage diving helmets and related equipment globally. Find out just how rewarding and pleasurable participating in our Diving Into History auctions are!
