The vendor "Sold by: J & L Cycle LLC" slipped in an Origin8 brand bell.
Looks similar but not the same...
Just not worth the time and money to send it back...

I had read a review or two on here before I placed my order that stated that this was an issue with the vendor J & L Cycle Llc. Before I placed my order I made sure that I was not ordering from this vendor but another vendor with the order fulfilled by Amazon. However, the order was fulfilled by J & L Cycle Llc. I was either wrong or it was changed during processing. No idea.
Unless you do not care if you receive the right item, I would not order this item from Amazon until they get rid of J & L Cycle Llc, which they clearly need to do.
Hope this was helpful to somebody, sorry I rated the actual product 1 star, but amazon doesn't really give you a choice here, just wanted to bring this to others attention.
In short: This bell is compact, pretty, and loud. Buy one and you'll love it.
It has a nice polished finish and has "CRANE" and "JAPAN" etched or engraved around the top/center of the bell. It fits easily onto my city bike handlebars and should also fit onto fatter cruiser type handlebars.
Since it has a single strike mechanism, it makes a loud *Dinnnnggggggg* sound, not the *Brrrrrrrring* sound that you might be used to from most bells that I've heard before.
However, if you have drop handlebars (as I do) and you don't have interrupter brake levers (see Sheldon Brown link below), this might not be the best option. Usually you need to ring the bell in a sudden situation when you also need to be hitting the brakes. There's just really no great place to mount this next to your hoods, so you may end up just yelling or whistling. Still, in casual riding or when overtaking someone, it's a very nice way to let people know you're coming.
Another problem is mounting on bikes with smaller diameter handle bars. I bought one of these for my girlfriend and have been trying to work out a good shim system every since. If you don't shim it properly, the bell will rest on your bar tape, thus muting any attempt to ring the bell. Obviously not a good situation. She has an older bike (from the 70's or so), so this issue may not be a problem with more modern bikes (like mine, a 2011 model) which have standardized and generally larger diameter handlebars.
This is a very clear, crisp, nice bell. The "ding" is loud and recognizable. The clapper works well. The spring is firm.
I do not recall why I chose this particular bell but I sure am satisfied with it. This is not the cheap raspy bells sold in the
5 and dime stores. This is a neat item worthy of a place on my bicycle.
