Provenance: Davao. In 1646, a Dutch Squadron composed of 7 ships attacked Zamboanga port as part of a series of battles with the Spanish. This could probably explain why a Dutch VOC ship bell would end up in Mindanao Island. A similar bell sold in the History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” show netted one of the highest pay-outs (S12,000).
