    Hi All,
    I recently picked up this nice 1936 Olympic Games Souvenier Bell, I believe the firm that made them was KPM, they also made a bank version, the ringer is missing on this one but the price was so low I didnt care! no other flaws and the detail and elegance makes it a nice display piece, hope you enjoy!
    Thanks for looking!

    This bell actually still exists, sort of. The famed tower it was in was burned by the occupying Soviet troops and the bell fell the entire distance of nearly 250 feet and cracked. Adding insult to injury, it was further abused as a target for anti-tank weapons. It is still on display today.
