Spanish Bell

This bell is exactly like the ones pictured in the lost Rhoads mines books that have been found in the Uinta Mountains. However this one was found by a boy scout while on a camping trip in the topaz mountain range.

Not really understanding why this bell and other relics are considered to be Spanish. Is it because people believe the markings lend to a Spanish origin? They do not appear to be Spanish to me but rather similar to other artifacts of an "unknown" origin found uniquely in North America. Possibly at some point we will all need to come to terms with the fact that others were in North America early on and the systematically accepted belief that only hunter/gatherers occupied the space here a thousand or more years ago just doesn't fly.
