    Hi, I got my hands on what apppears to be a Conshelf IV but the plastic knob just says US Divers. 4 LP Ports, 1 HP port with modern thread sizing. Serial number is: BBB3596. On my other Conshelf the serial # starts with xx- , with xx indicating year if manufacture. What do I have?

    Sounds like a Conshelf 21 or 22. Same internal service parts as a XIV.

    Thanks. Yes I do realize the service parts are the same and I already performed the service. Just curious to know what model it is and when it was born.

    FWIW I have a Conshelf 22 that I purchased new about a two decades ago. It has the same port configuration and thread sizing. The knob is plastic and says US Divers. The serial number is ZMB0843. I agree with GJC, it is probably a 21 or 22. The Conshelf 14 has the same port configuration, but would probably wouldn't have US Divers on the knob.

    I thought the 22 was satin?

    My late model, late production 14 has "US Divers Conshelf 14" on the knob.

    Mine is chrome, just like all of the other Conshelfs (Conshelves?).
