I received this USN Bell as a Christmas present. I would like to know some of the history. Inside reads Anchor Brass and Aluminum Company 60. It weighs 25 pounds(with bracket) is 9 3/4 in width by 10 in high. I would like to get restored. It is a wonderful present as I am in my 27th year of Naval service.
Unfortunately, I am not able to locate the search feature for the forum but I did google the Anchor Brass and Aluminum Co. and found that there are several postings by our late ABA member and Past-President, Harry Long. You can find it at .
Good luck at finding someone to restore it. Have you read through our forum on Repair, Restoration, Parts, and Cleaning?
