"I ask: why would a local band like a former, and therefore 
inaccurate weight to appear rather than a more realistic one (even if 
it is approximate)?"

Quite. Can the estimates for bell weights not include a tolerancy? 
Giving such entries as 19.5cwt +/- 10%. 
Surely it's best to include what is actually KNOWN about the tenor, 
if it's known to be approximate then say so. Having weights to the 
nearest pound that are known to be false seems rediculous.
