So Peter, you are in the UK, maybe you can tell me the origin of the strange peaked crown above the “A.M.” on those bells. It is nothing like the British Royal crowns, nor any of the heraldic crowns associated with England, that I’m familiar with (Baron, Viscount, Count, Prince…).

Where exactly did the crown shown on that bell originate?

I’ve done some research on crowns since various types appear on cannons I have, but I’ve never run across that one, except on the similar bell I had.
