I recently purchased a Durbin-Durco Bell with the following info on it:
Durbin-Durco St. Louis Mo.
Red D Bell
The bell is 11 3/4 inch in diameter and the stem for the gong has a 3 E on it.
I have three questions I would like to know about and really any info would be helpful. I am assuming this bell was originally some red color. Does anyone have a picture of the original bells as I would like to restore it to its original color.
Is there any way to determine the age of the bell?
IS there an appropriate post that the bells were mounted on?
