Thanks, Harry.
I appreciate any and all info!
While I hope to find authentic mounting hardware, I concede that is unlikely. I have several ideas for display mounting, thanks!
Do the numbers stamped on top relate to casting date, and the two engine numbers on which this bell was mounted? Railroadiana.org refered to several numbers stamped on the same bell as it was re-used…
Here’s a close up of the numbers and one of the checkering.
Thanks again.
