This exact replica of the Liberty Bell is the same size, weight, and material as the original. Therefore, it has the same tone that the Liberty Bell would have if it could be rung.

The bell, cast in France, weighs 2, 080 pounds. It is 85 percent copper and three feet tall from lip to crown. The bell has a twelve-foot circumference and measures three inches thick at the lip.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury presented the bell to North Carolina in 1950. It is one of over fifty replica bells that America's copper industry donated to encourage participation in the Independence Savings Bond Program.
Donation, United States Department of the Treasury
