    Thanks, Nightflier! I appreciate you weighing in. I plan to send it in to be professionally appraised, but keep forgetting to get all the right photos…and getting up there is a bit of a climb! If you know anyone that can give a professional appraisal from these photos, I’d be interested in hearing from you.

    Thanks!

    Very good point! I didn’t think of that. It’s not a very seismic area, but the wind can surely kick up.

    Carl,

    Thanks so much for the info and perspective. I appreciate the correction on brass/bronze, too.

    That is indeed the conundrum – structure needs repair, but likely much easier to support without half a ton up there.

    P.S. I have a recording of the bell tone, but can’t find it at the moment. A photo of it’s ancestral home in the meantime.
