    - This is not Berge mask, it is very different and very rare mask - First Japanese diving mask (1918) "near-fullface" mask

    Also one very interesting notice...
    When I told about my experience with self made full face mask - I told about masks with cylindrical or spherical glases... modern mask, used it - is Aquasphere, some years before - it was Hydrooptics, but first mask, used spherical glasses to correct air/water refraction - was Victor Berge mask!
