I’m wondering if I have an authentic camel ? This bell measures 4.25 inches to the top of the handle and 4.75 inches at the mouth. It weighs approximately 3 pounds. The 5 pointed star on the top appears to be degraded for some reason. Can anyone tell me if this is an original or a reproduction?

If you haven’t found the article entitled Camels in Texas and Their Bells at viewtopic.php?f=19&t=417&p=711&hilit=U.S.+Army+Camel+Bells#p711, you might want to read it. Also, if you do a search for U.S. Army Camel Bells in the white box in the darker blue strip at the top of any page, you will find even more information.
