Re: Re: Are church bells worth anything?
McShane bells are quality bronze bells. The value is determined by the size and weight of the bell, its tone and whether it has all of the original hardware, as well as its history. If you sell it to another church or a collector, you will probably get a higher price than if you sell it to an individual who will refurbish it and list it for resale. The latter will absorb a certain amount of cost for transport, storage, renovation and transport and installation at the new site. In addition, the resale will need to include a profit for the seller.
