Auction Notes

Nation’s Attic Diving Into History Winter 2022 featured a wonderful array of antique and vintage diving helmets and related equipment. Classic Mark V helmets from World War II were well represented with examples dating to 1943 and 1944 made by Diving Equipment & Salvage Co, Morse Diving Equipment, and A. Schrader's Son selling. One of the earliest known Mark V helmets made by A.J. Morse & Son from July 1916 found a new home. Also, of interest to American helmet collectors is a rare 1900 A.J. Morse & Son 5 bolt helmet, aka the US Navy Mark 1. A variety of diving helmets from Russia, the United Kingdom, and Japan received strong bidding. The auction also included the personal items from one of the first 100 US Navy Seals. Some of the noted items are a US Navy Mark V helmet and a 1964 Rolex Submariner he owned. Other notable piece that sold was a limited edition US Navy Mark V diver memorial brass statue, a rare 1961 Calypso underwater camera, rare books, nautical items, submarine memorabilia, and vintage scuba diving artifacts rounded out this end of year auction.
