Default Cymbal ID Help Needed

I found this cymbal online and it says no brand. Any ideas on what it could be?

What size is it? I kinda looks like it could be one of those Groove Percussion Cymbals or the generic cymbals that came with the old PDP EZ kits. They are all B-20 cymbals made in Wuhan, and for every 9 or 10 trash cans, there was 1 or 2 gems. The reason I ask about size is that those were all 16" cymbals. Sometimes the hats were 13" or 14" but they usually sounded terrible as both hats or individual crashes.

Looks like it could be one of them. I have one of those generic 16" crashes that's Groove Percussion branded. That thing sounds awesome! Couldn't use it as a main crash, but it has a great, trashy "white noise" kind of sound, almost in between a regular dark crash and one of those Ozone crashes, with a hint and bite of a china.

If it's cheap, I would go for it. If you don't like it, you could always resell it or use it as an effects stacker or something.

Old perhaps, but not necessarily in need of any cleaning.

To me it actually looks hand hammered.

I think it was a 16" crash....it sold pretty soon after I posted the pic. It did appear to me to be hand hammered...that is what peaked my interest
