      Hello All,

      I am looking for information on a bell made at the American Foundry of Northville, Michigan.
      I have a bell #3 made there.This bell has been in our family for over 50 years or more.
      Handed down from My grandparents not sure how long thy had it.
      I also know nothing about bells.The bell is in good shape- no chips or dings.
      I’ve searched all over the internet and haven’t found any info on this bell. So, here’s my questions…
      Is it rare?
      How old is it?
      It measures 18″ across the center diameter and it’s about 12.5 inches tall.
      any ideas on value? I think this one is made of iron or steel.
      I am interested in selling it, but have no idea what it is worth.
      Minneapolis MN.

      Im sorry but dont know how to upload photo here on photobucket?
      Maybe someone could explain to me how to. Or I can email you photo if you you whould like some.

      Thanks, Leroy
