Default Paiste 2002 Pre-Serial 16" Crash?


I was gifted a vintage Paiste 2002 16" crash. No cracks, some key holing, but intact and fine, sounds remarkable. I'm no Paiste expert, but from my research it looks to be a pre-serial 2002, so 1971, early 72. Has all of its natural patina, feels wonderful to play. Note: it seems, due to no serial number on the cymbal, the previous owner did engrave one, above the logo, on the top side. I've attached some pictures; 3 top and 2 bottoms.

My questions, for you knowledgeable Paiste people are:

1) Is it in fact, a pre-serial?

2) What's this cymbal's rarity?

3) Value? (in USD dollars).

I look forward to learning more about it.
