We have a c.s.bell with very little info on it. it says c.s bell on one side of the yoke and Hillsboro o. on the other side. The upright has a 3 on it. The bell also has a 3 on it. We are wondering if anyone could give us a guess as to an age and a value of it. We are planning on restoring it. Thanks!
There are two C.S. Bell No. 3 bells currently listed on a popular online auction site. One has a buy it now price of $100 and the other has a price of $40.99 or best offer. You might want to watch those auctions to see how much they sell for. I recommend you enter “Hillsboro, Ohio” in the search box at the top right corner of this page and read what people have said about the dates the company was making these bells. The value, of course, is what a buyer will pay for it on any given day. (I know that isn’t much help but it’s pretty accurate.)
