Keep dust -- and the apocalypse -- at bay with this super-cool-looking vintage respirator from the Mine Safety Appliances Company. Comes with original box and filters in good condition.
Box corners show some damage and seams are worn, but it still has tons of personality and retro instruction fun. Our best guess for era is 30's/40's.
This respirator would make a cool display piece, a nice addition to the mining history buff's collection or as a striking accessory for a steampunk costume. Harder to find this respirator complete with its box.
