North America: Liberty Bell

The telling feature of the Liberty Bell is it's distinctive crack in the bell, which was formed when it was first struck after arrival from England. It was inexpertly re-cast by John Pass and John Stow in America, which resulted in the bell cracking again for a final time. Today, you can still see the re-cast bell with the famous crack at Independence Hall.
