I am a new member from Iowa looking to get some identification on some older diving gear. I am actually not a diver at all (though I've always wanted to). I am a movie prop geek, and have an appreciation for diving pieces, of which I own several:
Vintage US Divers Co. - Aqua-Long Wraparound Goggles - Same pair as used by Hooper in "Jaws". The original strap is unfortunately gone.
Vintage Bug Diver 400 Light - as used by Hooper in Jaws - works.
Vintage U.S Divers Co. buckle - As used by Boba Fett in Star Wars ESB and RotJ.
I will post an additional thread with my specific question.
I have a virtually new wraparound mask in its blisterpak packaging, that part is cracked, but the mask is perfect!
This one is my diver, and I love it!
I probably have the fins used in that film too if'n yer interested
You know, I've never actually tried to identify the fins, but I do know Hooper also has an (if I'm remembering correctly) Aqualung knife and sheath, though it may have been US Divers Co. Here's my little display...

Welcome here! We can help with IDing gear. But you really should get wet with the gear, even if only in a pool. That way you can get a perspective on the gear you are collecting. 'Don't have to be a diver to put a facemask on and swim. Here is my wife, who is not a diver, practicing in a pool prior to a trip to Hawaii where we did some snorkeling.
