When did Zildjian use this ink stamp?

Hi, does anyone know when Zildjian used this ink stamp on their cymbals? I have this cymbal ordered, there was no photo of the stamp itself. It's a 24". I've had a 20" in the past with this ink stamp on the underside and I want to say it was from around the 70s or 80s. Am I way off? Cheers for any info.

That's a new one on me. does that say CM, as in centimeters? So perhaps Canadian?

Yes, you're right. It says 61cm, which is 24 inches in old money.

It is definitely a Zildjian. I have seen this stamp before. I'm just curious as to know when Zildjian were doing this. And where they were doing these. Like you said, could it be Canadian?

Pre-Sabian, when Robert Zildjian left the family graces and went to New Brunswick? I think that was in the mid-late 70s??

Didn't those sometimes have Made in Canada as part of the impression stamp?
