Limited Edition Diving Helmets

DESCO has produced limited edition helmets for the Historical Diving Society on three occasions. The first was the 80th Anniversary USN Mark V Helmet (1915-1995). The second was the DESCO 60th Anniversary Abalone Diver’s Helmet (1937-1997). These two series were limited edition runs of 20 helmets. The third limited edition helmet was the USS Squalus Helium Helmet. These custom diving helmets commemorated the raising of the USS Squalus in 1939. The series was limited to 26 helmets in memory of the 26 souls lost in the sinking. All the HDS helmets had special tagging and markings.
