    My first Crotal Bell!

    Found this right at the bottom of an old hitching post. Very happy to find my first one. Cleaned it up and it still rings!!

    One of my Favorite relics to dig. Nothing beats being the first to hear it ring after it being in the ground for 100+ years

    Nice! Congrats! I love these bells! Ive found several partial bells and recently found a complete one that works too. I just mailed mine out today to be fully cleaned, shined, and lacquered.
