This Fine Bell Has Been Sold. Thank you!

SHIPS BELL FRENCH LINES STEAM SHIP WYOMING
Ca 1930
Port of Le Havre

 
Presented is a fine example of a vintage ship's bell which is off  one of the French Lines two ships operated by Compagnie Générale Transatlantique both of which were named WYOMING, but with different build dates.
 
The chain of ownership in the United States goes back at least 65 years. This coincides with when the U.S. Navy commandeered the first Wyoming in February,1943 for service during the WW II. She was torpedoed shortly after the transfer on March 12, 1943 by German underseaboot U-524 so it likely came off when the ship was fitted with U.S. equipment before she departed for Casablanca from New York City.
 
The second Wyoming was not built until 1948 and was sold to the Japanese in 1961 and renamed “Seifu Maru". She was sent to the ship breakers in 1974 which is only 34 years ago which is much shorter time span then it was in the possession of the prior owners in this country.
 
Some people may say the bell belongs to the second vessel, but there is no reason for the American owners not to be truthful as to when and how it was acquired because they originally thought it was off our battleship USS WYOMING - BB 32. Other people may even think it is from another Wyoming entirely, but they miss the significance of "La Harvre" being the port of registry which makes the bell definitely from a French registered ship.
