Unfortunately the clamping mechanism is all jacked up.
Probably not too tough to fix, but kind of a bummer for a bell that will probably fetch somewhere between three to five bills.

Beautiful craftsmanship on these bells.
You’ve got to love that price!

Well bought at any price, because they sure don’t make them like that anymore.
