"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. "

One is the 12-bell trophy. Another is the Yorkshire / Lancashire Roses trophy, but I think that one was made after 1981 so it won't be one of the three you mention.
