DESCO manufactured a number of commercial antique diving helmets, but they are also known for their US Navy Mark V helmet. The ID plate on these reads U.S. Navy Diving Helmet; Mark V - Mod. 1. The next line will read Diving Equipment and Salvage Co. Inc; Milwaukee. WIS. Below that will be No. and Date, both will be stamped with the serial number and date it was built. DESCO made the Mark V from World War 2 into the 21st Century. A majority of the Mark V’s found are from the World War 2 period. Regardless of when the antique helmet was made, we are always interested in purchasing them. In addition to old diving helmets, we are interested in purchasing any diving equipment made by DESCO, including old manuals and sales books.

One variant of the Mark V that Diving Equipment & Supply Co Inc made was one fitted with an extra brass container on the back. These Mark V’s were for deeper water use. They are quite heavy and will also have some extra connections and an eyelet ring on the top. The photo to the left shows an example. If you have a Mark V like this, we can pay TOP DOLLAR for them.
