Presented  is hard hat , deep sea diving relic from World War Two. It comesfrom the collection of  a second generation
deep water diver who had a collectors’ compulsion of gathering everything he could related to diving. It was made by the
Guided Radio Corp. of New York City, NY.  We know nothing about the Type 957 System except that it is powered
by tubes and has toggle switches that allow the tender to talk to each diver individually or as a group and allows one
diver to talk to another.  All the switching is done from the comm box. This
the same system that was used in the movie, Men of Honor, staring Robert De Nero and Cuba Gooding, Jr.It is being sold for display only and should
be considered as not in working order.Showing right side of comm box imageCloseup of control panel imageThis example has no paperwork,
