I was given a brass bell – it looks like a giant bicycle bell that has the markings “New Departure” and “30-C” engraved on it. I believe it was made by the New Departure Bell Co. but I would like to find out more about it. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
If you can help, please post a response.

You may wish to Google the New Departure Bell Company. There is a nice page describing the company in Bristol, CT. It manufactured roller bearings and gong-type bells. There is little information on their bicycle bells.
