      I have another interesting bell to share with the members. I would like some information on this bell if possible. This bell is 8″ high and 8″ in diameter at the bottom. It is brass or bronze. The “B” and “1907” are engraved into the bell. It is a fairly heavy bell for its size. The seller said it is a railroad bell, but it is a bit small for that. Any information would be appreciated.

      If you can help, please post a response.

      Steve: It’s from a ship or boat. Nice that it bears the date. The “B” probably has something to do with the name of the vessel. You should polish it because that’s the way it would have been maintained originally. Great bell!
