have top wires. JT ones have their standard arrangement of 
2,2,inscription band,2,3,2. The L&J one we have in the museum is a 
very odd squat and angular shape.

The M & S ones were probably buoy bells: sand castings from a pattern 
that had some of the wires removed to make extracting it from the 
mold easier.
