I bought a similar 20" bell yesterday at my cousins auction. It has the legs/stands and the arm to tie the rope to. I ended up paying $375 but it has some family history. It was used on my grandfather's brothers farm and was most likely the bell that rang when my great grandmothers house burnt in the early 1900's. I really don't need it since I already have grandpa's almost identical bell, but I wasn't going to see it sell cheap. Grandpa had 12 siblings but I think only the one with another bell, I hope!
