      I have a 30″ bell cast by CS Bell between 1894 and 1900. I’m pretty sure about the dates since it says ‘The CS Bell Co.’ on the yoke, indicating it was cast after Bell incorporated in 1894, and the fact that the church it was installed in was finished in 1900. It has the original standards, wheel, clapper and a static ringer, which I believe is called a ‘toller’? It was aquired by my family from the church in Minnesota in the early 40’s, and is in excellent condition. There are no cracks, it has never been painted, and the ring is impressive. I am looking for advice on placing a fair value on it and the best avenues to sell. I would appreciate any help.

      For values, I would look at ebay and watch for similar size iron or steel bell sales. Don’t go by “buy it now” prices as most of bells those don’t sell for that price.
