    Was sposed to be a hi squeak walk

    Its all I intended for today. Just a nice couple hour walk on a very nice day. Occasionally, a find or two. But those solid minor tones just wouldn't leave me alone!

    Oh well, I've had worse days.

    BTB, The Crotal bell tinkles again! I wonder how long it had been between?

    Thanks for peeking!

    Yeah, it is! There's a bit of design left and on the very top of the stem, it looks like a character or two is hiding there. I'm trying to bring it out.

    This thing was almost a foot down and still rang up true.(no pun intended).

    Its fun to get one of these whole and then find that they still jingle once the dirt is cleaned out.

    Thanks!

    The 2 pics of the stem are flipped 180 degrees. Trying to show what I thought were characters. Maybe better eyes can see.

    Thanks again folks, my best one in half a century of looking. Not gold, silver etc. But...a personal, plain and simple banner find. (For me)

    Sweet no.1 crotal bell you dug. It's so cool to bring one back to life.
    If you do a Xmas tree tie a little ribbon on it and it's a great way of bringing cheer by hanging it.
    Congratulations on your little treasure.

    That crotal bell is a sweet find my friend, crotals are one of my favourite relics to recover.
    Yours cleaned up very nicely, probably from a horse harness string.

    The 'marks' on the top of your bell are casting marks, I had to take a second look at them as well, as it almost looks like a date.
    I remember finding one years ago that had the makers initials stamped into the top of it.

    I find a lot like the bells below in my part of the country.
