Rare piece of diving history dating to World War 2 or shortly after. This is called a DESCO Buccaneer or B Lung. These were made for the US Government and specifically the Navy & OSS late in WWII. Early examples feature a oval mask, like this one. This example is was certainly used and is a prime piece for restoration. Few of these have survived, especially early examples such as this! The photos show the overall condition. Included in the photos is a DESCO factory image of the B-Lung being demonstrated.

All items will be shipped with a signature required upon delivery and full insurance either via FedEx or the USPS. Worldwide shipping available. A shipping quote prior to the auction can be provided by emailing your postal code.
