Default Old Zildjian Hi-hat Identification Help Needed

These are the only pics I currently have of these Zildjians. Any idea on an age range? The stamp looks pretty worn down. thanks

Later 60s, or possibly early 70s. That's based on the lathing style and the hammering style (or more specifically lack of obvious hammering). In the first picture the size of the stamp looks like 60s tall (the 1.5" version) when compared to the diameter of the bell. But it's a crummy photo and a poorly pressed in stamp so it is hard to say for sure. I don't see any hint of a MADE IN U.S.A. underneath. It might just be missing because of the light pressing.

Thanks for the info...always appreciate it! I went ahead and ordered them...should be getting them soon and will post some better pics. The online store had them listed as "unmarked" cymbals, lol.
