That 26″ ABFCo at that auction site is NOT excellent condition. Though the pawnshop owner claims no damage, the yoke has a major irregularity that has obscured the lettering and the entire word “BELL”. In addition someone took a spray can of primer paint and partially painted the exterior with a very bad coating and ignored the interior. The bell was not even dis-assembled prior to spray paint abuse! I doubt that it was even cleaned first! Such a shame to treat it so badly! The listing was posted repeatedly and did not sell at that price as of this date. I am just saddened that it was treated so badly by someone only interested in a dollar. I can’t imagine even trying to deal with a pawnshop.
