The iconic bell we all rode our bicycles over a hundred times a day just to drive the gas station attendant nuts!
This is a vintage piece with its metal back (not plastic). It’s hard to pin down a date on these bells because they were all dated May 12 1959, which was the patent date NOT the date of manufacture. My research leads me to believe that because of its metal back plate and the UL decal on the front, and the fact that its in its original box (as told to me by the previous owner) which is dated 1958 as is the paperwork, that this item is probable early to mid 60’s.
Bell is in used condition showing some wear and slight staining in places but is still in working condition. Cord is in good shape with a of couple paint spots on it.
This would make a great gift for the petrolatum collector or car person on your list, or a cool addition to the Man Cave! Milton is still in business and sells the thin wall rubber tubing to lay across your driveway and make this unit functional.
