Default Re: Another “How much is my old K worth” question...

Looks like a IIIb to me. Here's my analysis of pricing based on completed sales:

In my pricing work I group all Old Stamps together to get sample sizes which are larger and give more stable estimates. If you follow that link you will see that I divide the 18" cymbals up by weight and yours is in the under 1800g category:

Old Stamp: Expected median price $750 with half selling for between $500 and $900 n=24

More details on how condition influences estimated price, and a background to the boxplot graphics I use are found on the Avedis Zildjian page:

Yours looks to be in good to excellent condition. How prices vary between Europe (including the UK) versus the USA/Canada is a more complicated topic which I have done a little work in. But international economic comparisons are notoriously difficult. All the prices I give are in US Dollars and exclude shipping.
For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert, but for every fact there is not necessarily an equal and opposite fact (Thomas Sowell, 1995 in The Vision of the Anointed)
