One other is certainly the 12 Bell shield.

The Channel Islands district of the W&P possess a shield cast in bell metal
as the trophy for the District striking competition. It was a gift from Paul
Taylor of the Loughborough Foundry in 1981. It was said at the time to be
one of only three in existence, cast of bell metal and the trademark of Hugh
Watts, master bell-founder of Leicester in the mid 16th century. 


Is it still true that it is one of three? 


Who has the other ones? and how did they get them?


Ours was obtained through Tony Wolstenholme of Alderney, who was friendly
with the Taylor family. He had it very nicely mounted on a polished board in
memory of his wife and it now has engraved silver plates on the back listing
the competition winners.
