Hi Paula, I am the person who is anxiously awaiting the copper stamped Bell Trading bracelet CSB32.

It does not have a Bell hallmark, but at one end in the border depression there appear to be 2 “C’s” facing each other like a figure 8. There also appears to be a copper or brass metal under the silver tone metal finish. At one tiny place a different color metal can be seen and there is a greenish-blue hue along one edge. The fact that this piece is the exact replica, except for stamping, of the piece I’ve purchased is intriguing. Do you have any ideas where I could get more information about it. Thank you very much. Dorothy
