Navy Submariners Cold Weather Mask

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

As sinister as this mask appears it was simply used to keep warm. If you take a close look at the masks buttons each depict a naval anchor symbol. I an told that these were mostly used in submarines when loading torpedoes. It must have been cold in that room. Included is an elaborate custom museum quality display stand.
