Liberty Bell Reproduction
Dedicated to You, a Free Citizen in a Free Land
As the inspirational symbol of the United States Savings Bonds Independence Drive from May 15 to July 4, 1950, it was displayed in every part of this state.
The dimensions and tone are identical with those of the original Liberty Bell when it rang out our Independence in 1776. In standing before this symbol, you have the opportunity to dedicate yourself, as did our founding fathers, to the principles of the individual freedom for which our nation stands.

American Smelting and Refining Company, Anaconda Copper Mining Company, Kennecott Copper Corporation, Miami Copper Company, Phelps Dodge Corporation, The American Metal Company, Limited, Steel Supports by U.S. Steel Corporations American Bridge Company.
