Ive seen that mount on other jcr bells also. Im not sure if that is older or newer. Two of mine have the mount that is pictured above and one has to use a clamp.That bell on eBay is definitely chromed, not simply polished raw steel. As I said, I've never seen any authentic JCR bells that weren't raw steel ..... most a little rusty and funky. I've teched for a lot of old New York players who have impressive collections of JCR stuff. Also the mount is quite different from any other JCR half moon I've seen.
How hard would it be to copy (counterfeit?) an authentic JCR bell? There really isn't a whole lot going on there ...... except the irreplaceable, essential mojo ....... and the sound, of course. I'd hate to think that someone was trying to cash in by stamping initials and making paper labels.
