Nation's Attic
Diving Into History Auction

December 3rd, 2021


Nation's Attic's last Diving Into History auction for 2021 will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, 2021. This event will be a memorable one full of unique and, in some cases, one-of-a-kind items. The auction consists of multiple collections from individuals and businesses.

The largest segment of this auction will be submarine memorabilia from the Ed Uditis collection. Mr. Uditis is known as an expert guest speaker and collector of submarine and diving artifacts throughout the world. An accomplished diver since 1954, underwater filmmaker, college professor, board member of The Historical Diving Society USA and New London Maritime Museum, Mr. Uditis is a living legend within the international diving communities.

Hardhat equipment and related diving gear used by the Divers Academy International technical school are also 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, rare knives, books, and photos from multiple collections around the globe will also be available. Maritime artifacts, rare documents, ship and submarine models,  and even a collection of authentic Megalodon teeth will round out the sale.

As always, all international bidders are welcome. 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!
