Default Vintage Zildjian Ride Cymbal... What Year??

Hello to all, this is my first post here. I have this old Zildjian 22" ride. I am not sure what year it is from. I have looked at many stamping timelines however I can't pinpoint exactly when it was made. I think 1950s to 1960s. Can anyone tell from the photos? It never had the black painted Zildjian logo on it. Thanks

I like it. It has a nice clear ping to it. Not as warm as my Constantinople. I have just recently purchased a few different Dream Bliss cymbals and I have to say I am blown away by them. I paid below MAP price and actually got a 20" Bliss ride Hand hammered B20 Bronze for only $96 It is every bit as good as the Zildjians sound. They even have a 2 year warranty. Crazy!!
