Re: Re: If any one can help? Large Church Bell
This sounds like a typical C.S.Church Bell, Hillsboro, OH. A steel alloy bell will not be as valuable as a bronze bell, but a #48 is a large bell and to the right collector will be worth the cost of removing it from the steeple. Some churches are looking for a bell and might be interested in yours. If it is intact with all of the hardware and wheel, it will be worth more than if parts are missing. Be careful in removing it, as the cast iron “A” brackets on which it rests are cast iron and easily broken.
