Rare Joe Savoie #48 Stainless Steel Diving Helmet
Item Details
Description
Rare opportunity to own arguably the most desirable diving helmet made during the early 1970s. This stainless steel helmet was made by Joe Savoie of Boutte, Louisiana. It is serial #48 and in very good original condition. Joe Savoie made each helmet on a custom order basis from this backyard shop. His first 100 helmets were designed around a fiberglass motorcycle helmet. He would switch to a stainless-steel shell and produce approximately 200 in this style. This original example is in very good condition with only light scratches and signs of wear. There is one slight dent towards the top left of the shell which is hardly noticeable. Inside of helmet is complete with Joe Savoie liner. Helmet will be accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity detailing its history. A matching serial numbered hologram decal on the inside of the helmet from Nations Attic will be applied as well to preserve the helmets history and authenticity.
