      I have a small collection of California mission bells produced by Mrs. Forbes. I am puzzled over the differences in patina among the various bells. Some have what appears to be a high polish bronze, and others a more brass-like green patina. Is this difference due to the initial casting process or a result from environmental conditions that the bells have been subjected to over the years? Thank you for any ideas on this subject. Ginny09
