This helmet was discovered in 2013 in Hungary together with a Draeger pump, a Daeger suit, and some home made shoes, weights and a knife. According to the man who found it this equipment was built for a diver who lived at the Danube river. Exact info is not (yet) available. The exhaust valve is a rough copy from the exhaust valve as used on Draeger helmets since the early 1940’s which indicates that this helmet was built some time after that. Special thanks to Daniel Selmeczi for sharing the info and photographs here below.
