This is a fascinating and visually impressive fiberglass helmet made by the Dutch company Pommec. This two light (window) design also utilizes incorporated dual lights within the shell. This helmet weighs approximately 35 pounds. There is one internal light missing on the divers left side, otherwise major components appear to all be intact. There are no noticeable cracks in the fiberglass shell. Etched into the neck ring is SMIT-TAK No 2. Few of these helmets were produced and even fewer exist in collections today.

All diving helmets in this auction will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Nations Attic. The certificate will have a unique number that will match the number on a tamperproof hologram decal placed inside the helmet. This information will be kept on permanent file at Nations Attic and help ensure the provenance of the helmet and authenticity.

All items will be shipped with a signature required upon delivery and full insurance either via FedEx or the USPS Priority Mail. Worldwide shipping is available; however, no ocean freight will be offered on large items. DHL express is an option for international shipments under 600 pounds via air. A shipping quote prior to the auction can be provided by emailing your postal code.
