Vintage COPPER OR BRASS BELL 3-Inch Mouth, Yoke, Patina - eBay (item 310074619654 end time Aug-16-08 18:55:18 PDT)
This vintage 3-inch bell-shaped bell has so much dark patina I'm not sure if it's copper or brass. A magnet slides right off, for whatever that's worth. It makes a lovely sound. I see no maker's mark, but it's well-made, quite sturdy.
See inside? Green patina and coppery-colored where the clapper hits. The two white spots on the dark outside scratched off after I took the photos. You can shine this bell up if you like. I didn't even try.
