This is a super cool bell made by New Departure, of coaster brake bicycle hub fame. They first started out as New Departure Bell Co. in 1888 and later started producing bicycle hubs, and even later automobile parts. This bell was made around the turn of the century and it is very rare to find it with the “ruby” eyes still intact.
