      Hi everyone,
      I’m new to the board. I’m hoping someone can help me find this particular bell:

      It’s a perin and gaff 16″ bell.
      It holds a lot of sentimental value and I’d really like to find one. Your help is really appreciated.

      Based on the small top of the bell as a percentage of the diameter of the mouth, and based on the rings around the bell near the rim, this is a very early bell. I’d say it was made prior to the Civil War. I don’t know where you can buy one. This firm was not a large producer of bells, but I do hear of one every few years. — Neil
