Default datation evaluation old K 21,5 and K Orchestra

Here is my first message, so happy to meet a new drummer community.
I need your expertise about two Zildjian K cymbals, by curiosity and because i could sell one of them in the future, before making this choice, i would like a precision about datation and evaluation/cotation of each one.

The first one is an old K i measured 21,5, you can see the pics here :

We told me she must be from the 50's, what do you think about it ? The weight is 2500gr, she's crashable, very dark and "traditional" sound, jazzy. As you can see, there is a keyhole and the beggining of small cracks.

How old is she and what could be a good price to sell it ?

The second one is a K 20 Orchestra i must receive in few days, does anyone know which period she's been manufactured ? I imagine during the 80's, someone told me the actual K20 crash/ride could be an equivalent. I don't know, i don't have received it yet but i'm very curious about his history. Sorry, i've no pics for this one for the moment.
Any idea of datation and cotation for K 20 Orchestra and in which kind of musical atmosphere she's used ?

Thanks for your expertise.
