Antique Vintage 8/29/41 Navy Morse Of Boston Mark V Display Brass Diving Helmet:
The sale features a vintage US Navy Diving Helmet marked Morse Diving Equipment Co. Inc. - Boston, Mass. The No. Is blank and the Date has 8-29-41. The helmet is heavy, weighing about42 pounds. The brass helmet will clean up, but I think the patina looks great the wayit sits. local pickup is available inthe chicago landarea for free. I believe that this is an old replica but I am not positive. There is a small dent on the top but it does not take away from this beautiful piece Please look at photo 12 to see what i mean.. I will take returns but the buyer pays all shipping cost so please look at all the photos and ask all questions before buying.On May-02-13 at 04:22:26 PDT, seller added the following information:
