Default identifying vintage avedis

hi. i just bought two 20" vintage Zildjian avedis Ride cymbals and a 14" vintage Zildjian avedis HH.
i am now trying to identify exactly the era they are from. i added two pictures of one of the stamps (the same). the stamp looks the same to me on all the cymbals.
anybody out there can help me? thanks for your help...

That's 1960's. I need to see the whole cymbal to determine if it eary or middle.

The 20" is middle 60's. The right hi-hat it also, but the left one looks different. It's got broader impact, larger hammering. Although it may be the same vintage, I'd like to see the trademark from that one plus a rear-side view.

Hi drumaholic! thanks so much for your input... wish i could tell...
so both of the 20"s are mid 60s? great...
here's more pics of the hihat, the first 3 are the top cymbal (the above "left" cymbal). stamp is almost not visible, hard to picture. the last two are the bottom cymbal...

Yes both those 20's are the same.

The one hi-hat that I asked for more pictures of is older than the other. It looks more like early 1960's to me. Cymbals of 2 different eras sometime times got matched up together like that, but they are always related by being both being only one era different.

Drumaholic: thanks a lot. without your help i would have guessed those cymbals were from the 70s. thank you!
so the only thing i would still like to know, is if those cymbals are more valueable than the 1970s version, or less?

btw.: what hasn't been mentioned here is that thos cymbals (20 ride - 20 crash/ride - 14 HH) sound truely amazing. just had them for a day and shall test them more later this week...

I think 1960's cymbals are more sought after than 1970's. So I would expect them to be worth a little more, but not a whole lot.
