Cool What the hell is the origin of this? (18" Crescent)

Bought this 2nd hand. Stamp doesn't match any other crescent cymbal I've and can't find anything about it online. No clue when the rivet holes were drilled.

Any ideas where the hell this came from?

No idea...but did you really feel the need to use a 4-letter word in your title and text?

Looking again, they do look like simple Turkish. St.Petersburg and Moscow are genius wonders.

The iconic domes of Kremlin in Moscow are supposed to represent the turbans of defeated Turkish sultans. So they are deliberately kinda middle-eastern, even though Russia is a different animal altogether.
