Here is the other nepoleon bell I just got in.

It is much heavier, shows a lot more wear to it (polished out mostly!) and is significantly different in size.
The seller claims it to be older than 50 years, I’d believe it from the wear, it seems to have been very heavily polished over the years.

Vital Stats:
6.5″ (3.25″ for bell alone) high
3.5″ diameter

Note the bubbles of metal inside the bell itself. I’m not sure if that is from aging (suspect not as not seen on outside) or more probably the casting process.
