Either 1811 was a very good year for Mexican makers of bells about 10″ in diameter, or else someone is making new bells with that date on them in quantity and burying them for a few months in the ground with a urine soaked diaper around them to age them quickly. I happen to think the latter is the case. Why don’t we ever see a picture or hear of one dated 1810 or 1812? — Neil Goeppinger
