An Enquiry

I’ve had an email asking for assistance in identifying a bell. Photo
attached, and details below. Anyone?


Dear Sir
I have an old bell, about 10 inches diameter at the base, with the following
casting marks.
A crown, above the letters ER.
The letters S C C above a circle, whithin which is the letter S at the top,
then C 9 C underneath.
I would be very grateful for any information that these markings may
indicate. Also - how do I tell if it is brass or bronze?.
(The bell was found with two others in an old coal washery near Swansea in
South Wales if that is any help.)
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
