  I have not noticed anything out of the ordinary concerning the 
serial numbering of G&J's bells. Fron their great carillons down to a 
ring of 6 seem to be treated the same. I have not inspected many of 
their bells - I leave that to others, but I have noticed that the 
position in the peal is also placed on the bell.
