Re: Re: BELL from 1700s help finding history
Thanks for the interior photo. Congrats, you have a super-rare ship bell. The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich England only has 2 18th century bells. Photos of them are on the website. Really old ones with the name of the vessel and year are some of the most scarce of bell collectibles. Most were scrapped when ships were taken out of service or are on the bottom of the sea. Keep it in a safe place.
