And there are a few "Simpson tuned" bells that find hard to believe
really are Simpson.

I thought Simpson tuning referred to the sequence of overtones and not
there relative prominence or persistence, making it possible to have
very poor sounding bell that technically is Simpson.
Also how much error in the notes produced is allowed before the bell is
no longer Simpson tuned?

No bell can ever be without errors, and metal loss at the clapper strike
point must detune.
