This is a vintage Comex two hose demand style “shell hat” diving helmet. Designed by the famed French company specializing in deep diving and engineering. Masks, helmets, and watches, among other items, are prized among collectors today. This fiberglass shell includes some original hardware on the outside as well as an inner liner. Also included is the correct ScubaPro regulator for this piece. A great piece for restoration. Please refer to the photos for additional information.
