Thanks for the reply, sir. I have contacted them two days ago but until now no reply. I would just like to know if this is the original EL CAMINO REAL bell of 1906 or the JUSTIN KRAMER replacement bell of 1963.
My research shows that most of the original bells of El Camino Real were vandalized or stolen. If this bell is one of them, it is interesting to know how it got to the Philippines which is thousands of miles away from California.

Was this one of those stolen in the early 1900’s?

This bell was found buried under 3 feet in a countryside rice paddy.
