Welcome to the ABA! Bell Talk Forums Small Bells Columbian Liberty Bell Reply To: Columbian Liberty Bell


Mike in California writes and sends a picture of his Columbian Liberty Bell:

My bell has “McShane Bell Foundry, Baltimore MD” stamped on the front of the base…which is different from the bicentennial replica which is inscribed with J.R. McShane’s name.

I have attached a photo of my bell…since it’s clearly different than the J.R. McShane Commemorative, and different from your bell as well…too many variations!

Sorry for the picture quality, if you enlarge the image you can see the engraving on the bell itself.


Mike’s bell looks like Alan’s. What can he do about the green on the bell?
