We just purchased an old home in Cleveland and found a Jas. L. Haven bell (16″ dia) with a yoke embossed Crystal Metal, Yoke No. 2, dated 1886.
Does anybody have any information on this bell and recommendation on how to best restore it?
The clapper rod is broken and the crank is loose, everything else is just rusty.
Thanks, Chris
