Crystal,
That bell probably was not mounted in a bell tower or a wall, but it was HEAVY 😕 , well over 1,000 lbs. Considering the cost of scrap metal this was a pot of $ just waiting to be taken.
This is only one of many scrap metal thefts it happens every day 😥 . Does any one have good pictures of the bell showing all the lettering and decorations on the bell. Also what type, shape of mounting is on top. Harry and lucky13 have good suggestions. What ever type of bell your church decides to obtain make sure it has a secure theft proof mounting. Max
