Default Vintage Zildjian Crash and Hats question

Hello, this is my first post to this website. Nice to meet you all.

I recently came across a few vintage cymbals and would love to know some more about them. One is a very thin 14" crash cymbal that reads "Avedis Zildjian Co Genuine Turkish Cymbals Made in USA" (See pic) and the others are a pair of 13" hi hats that read "Zildjian Co Istanbul Zildjian" (see pic). I have no idea what year these are or what they may be worth. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks VDF.

Edit: I just noticed a small "tear" in the bottom of the bottom hi-hat. Darn! How will this affect the value?

The made in USA stamp is an early Zildjian stamp, circa 30's-40's, the other looks to be an Old Stamp IIa, but the real authority is Drumaholic. I'd say the hats could be worth $500.00-1000.00, and the 14 crash maybe $200.00-400.00'

Others will chime in, nice find!!

to the forum!

Wow, you sure found a great set of cymbals! I think backbeatkeeper is pretty accurate with what you have, but let's see what others "in the know" have to say.

Again, welcome!

Hihat stamp is definitely IIa type, period
1945-1949.
