The other cymbal also seems to have what looks like a crack or potential crack near the hole.
Can you really see well enough from a video to see cracks? I don't know. Personally I have to see each one in person in order to find them. Anyway here's the statement from man himself:

As Zenstat pointed out, I was quoting JDA and was referring to his eBay link for those 15 inch hats, not that beautiful 22" you posted. A far as the cracks are concerned, I buy cymbals to play them not just to look at them. That one cymbal with 5 cracks around the hole would make me too nervous to play them on a gig. I, nor my son, could ever really relax and enjoy them, thus my ten foot pole comment..

What I lack in visual acuity, I more than make up for in charm.

That's mostly true with the old stamps, except for some of the type IV's. Not always true with the intermediates or the new stamps. I'll demonstrate this later.
