Default Canadian A Zildjian Flange (aka “bop”) hi hat value?

Years ago I happened upon an A. Zildjian “Made in Canada” flange hi hat bottom (1434g). I found a great reference on VDF to show that indeed Zildjian reproduced these hats again for a period in the 70s after their initial run in the 50s (albeit heavier in the 70s than the originals).

It’s not AZCO, and from the logo and hammering most definitely an Avedis Canadian instead of a Canadian K. Even without a matching Canadian top hat is this thing any more valuable than a standard set of 14” 70s New Beats?

The cymbal on the top (1196g) in the pic is an American A Zildjian top hat from the 70s that I’m using with them right now.
