Default old zildjians check out stamps

I need help dating these cymbals, I know the left pic is a trans stamp, the pic in the middle has a different looking "Z" can`t seem to find one like it. The right pic is a 22" swish that I bought used in the 70`s. Help me I`ve spent alot of time on this and i`m just not sure. ThanksClick image for larger version

The first 2 are both trans stamps, but of different types....chronologically different yet both pretty close to each other in the early 50's. The one on the right is 60's.

Thank you very much for the info, the left pic is a 14 and the middle pic is a 18. I have not seen a stamp like the one on the 18. I`m glad you cleared that up for me. Thanks again.

You have a good eye for discerning details. Most people wouldn't have noticed that. And you also take very good trademark photos. Not that many people can do that as well as you can either.
