Could someone tell me what would be a period correct oxygen mask for the oxygen cylinder in my 1952 National? Any lead on one would be a ++ bonus. Thanks in advance.

Of the ones listed currently on e-bay I think this would be the most correct;

I would recommend staying with rubber tubing and masks since we did not really start using plastic tubing and masks until the late 50's or early 60's.
Good Luck.
