U.S. NAVY SHALLOW WATER
MILLER- DUNN STYLE 2
Dimensions of Helmet: H22 1/2″ x W11 1/2″
Presented is a shallow water Miller-Dunn Navy Style 2 Divinhood as was used by the U.S. Navy from about 1929 until the adoption of the ubiquitous Style 3 in the early 1940’s. It is complete in all respects except for the weights and is in excellent condition. This design and the Style 1 are the most unique of this maker’s helmets, and the Style 2 is the most dramatic looking, making it very sought after by collectors. The helmet has been in a private collection for some time, and is new to the market. It has been polished, adding to its dramatic presentation, and some repair work done. Note the extended shoulders on this example. The early ones were made without them and were uncomfortable in use and therefore not as desirable. It is complete in all respects and in the same configuration delivered to the Navy.
