Hi I have a small brass bell and base made from the original paddle wheel from the American Queen River boat. The bell is a small scale replica of the boats bell. Doe anyone know of these souvenirs? I wonder if it now is a rare or limited piece? I bought it on ebay for 45 dollars yrs ago.
Actually, if you search for “American Queen” (right side of blue bar at top of page) you will see one that I posted a few months ago.
It has a photo and a few more details for you. I don’t know if it’s a fundraiser (what I suspect) or a presentation bell for people who participated. I am also trying to find out how many were produced. The price you paid is about right.
