Recently and quite by mistake I placed a bid on an AM hand bell I saw at auction via the-sale room.com. Completely forgetting about it much to my shock some weeks later it turned out I had won it. This bell has at some point been painted red, presumably used as a fire bell on a station. Stamped on the handle collar is a lovely AM and crown motif and also the contract number with 1940 date. The varnish has come away slightly on the handle but overall condition is excellent and boy what a noise it makes.
I am looking to sell this as I have one already. If anyone is interested please just mail me. I am looking for £100 for it.
