Please do not get mad but I made a mistake. I compared it to the s3j some more and I now say that that is the only real image of a s5a ever. I knowticed the smallest bell on the 5 chime was closer in size to the 440 bell on the s3j than the 2nd largest bell on the s5a.

Thank you for saying that. Also it was harder to dete mine due to the horns being different colors.

We can't tell if this is a S5D or S5A though without seeing the lengths of the bells.

It's a s5a without a doubt.

the second to smallest bell in the photograph looks like a bigger flare than a 440 bell. the s3j on the left is a tad closer to the camera.it wont work to compare... three large bells below look more convincing towards s5a .i cant confirm it as the S5A... im not sure whats going on in the picture is the top left bell a 55 or a 44?

I had to look really close at the 440 bell of both horns and I might get that the s3j is closer, but I could still tell they were the same size

I wonder what a S5A tag would look like if an image could be made.
