      Hi It looks like a ships bell. The shape and rings tell me it came from a ship.

      My feeling was the same and I am not sure what ship was using YT as initials. I also did not eliminate the possibility of it being from a steam engine train or a fire truck. It is very thick and very heavy. Thank you for your input.
