Fake Brass Railroad Bells

From: "P Janovick" pjanovick@neo.rr.com

I found your site while searching for info on a PRR brass bell I bought about 15 years ago. I was told the bell I bought was an authentic rail bell, how can I tell if this is true or if it is one of these fakes? What is the incorrect engraving that I should look for ... or anything else ?

I would appreciate any info you can give me. My grandfather worked on the PRR all his life, and I was hoping this bell (along with other PRR memorabilia that we found after his death ) could be a link to him for his great-grandchildren.

Thank you in advance for your assistance
