The only way to tell will be to test them, but Smarden are certainly 
a cut above any other bells of his I've rung on. In the days when I 
rang there regularly, my ear was pretty well practiced at picking out 
the harmonics in a bell, so I'm inclined to think that they are 
probably nearer to true-harmonic than most of his work.
