I don’t like posting negatives but, I believe, it is important to discuss this matter.
My wife, the real bell collector in the family, has an almost complete collection of ABA convention bells. Most are beautiful and artfully created. She recently received her (expensive) 2015 ABA convention bell and is very dissapointed with the lack of quality. I have to agree with her. The casting is not clean but very low quality and poor definition of lines and letters, etc. It is cast from a mystery metal, probably pot. The ring is uninspiring. The committee that approved this should be embarrased, as should the entire leadership and membership of ABA. After all, this is the AMERICAN BELL ASSOCIATION. This bell does not well represent the association. I hope future convention committees will attempt to do better.
