CSS Alabama Bell

A medium size bronze bell recovered from the CSS Alabama with a raised line at the top and three incised lines near the bottom rim of the bell.  A bronze mounting racket is attached to the top of the bell which curves downward to a bronze plate with two screws.  The mounting racket would have been screwed into the foremast allowing the bell to hang.
