One of the most famous commercial diving helmets ever produced is the Miller Diving model 400. Not only was the helmet a favorite among active divers now, in the 21st Century, but it is also a desirable collectible model. The Miller 400 features a solid cast bronze shell.

This example has been meticulously taken care of by a professional. As shown in the photos, the bronze body has been painted with a desert tan or brown paint, which looks nearly new. The helmet was refurbished by a Kirby Morgan Maintenance & Repair Technician in July 2019. All the soft components were replaced except for the oral-nasal. The face plate and side block were repaired and serviced by KMDSI. A factory new welding lens has also been installed.

The helmet will be accompanied by spare replacement parts shown in the last photo and a copy of the original Miller Diving manual. It would be very difficult to find a nicer example of this iconic helmet.
