This is a very nice original example of first generation double hose regulator made by Northill. This example features serial number 55-245 which dates it to 1955. The initial production run of Air Lung regulators was sand cast and made of bronze, like this example. The green label also helps date this regulator as it was the first color used by Northill. The hose is in good condition, the mouthpiece is intact with some evidence of aging, adjustment key is present. Please refer to the detailed photos for more information on this piece. The regulator is mounted on a K valve for display purposes only; the valve is not included in the sale.
