    Description

    GI Joe - First Navy Scuba Suit with Early Joe Prototype (Hasbro, 1964). This alternate version of the scuba suit features a somewhat more elaborate design, with a higher collar, scuba-flippers, and headpiece. Constructed from a bicycle's inner tube and hand-sewn, this scuba suit has the added attraction of being worn by an early 12" Joe prototype figure with hand-painted face; the age and delicacy of the rubber suit prevents us from performing a detailed examination of the figure, but it appears to be the same type as offered in the previous lot. The figure wears a hand-crafted depth gage, and what appears to be a regular production scabbard. The rubber is in exceptional condition, and exhibits little, if any, deterioration; there are some small orange stains on the back of the jacket, and the flippers have curled somewhat, but overall this is one of the most striking prototypes in this sale.
