Default zildjian k constantinople

I have a 15" zildjian k Constantinople heavy cymbal that sounds
like a 20" jazz ride,i don't know the weight. I am curious of the age and the value and possibly sell it. I am new to this, I type slow, here are the pictures.

Default Re: zildjian k constantinople

Damn, that's an OLD, OLD one ! All the more amazing because, from your description, it seems to be thin (?) Or am I incorrect on that interpretation ? Most of those were thick as boat anchors.

Drumaholic can give you a more definitive date...I forgot my K Constantinople dating, since I don't visit that other forum anymore since they started eating their young, and each other....

It is definitely from the 1930's or so, if not earlier...

If that cymbal is, say, 1000g or under in weight...hell, it's worth a good $275-375; providing there are no cracks or dents....if it is heavy, then only worth about $125-150.....
