Yeah, obviously I didn't mean NOS, which, for me has little value. I'm talking £/€ too. Just found 6 or 7 50s As for under €250 on European sites.
One has to consider NOS cymbals for comparison pricing the 100 yr Armand anniversary cymbals.....because that's what they are....new and never used.
It doesn't make any sense to compare well used and patina'd to fully brilliant NOS.
I've sold numerous used 20" 1950's A's on Reverb in the $175-$225 range....and from home quite a few at $125-$150. Very easy to obtain, at least in medium weights. Thins and medium thins
are a lot harder. Well used pricing and availability doesn't have much bearing on what an NOS would fetch if one showed up. What kind of premium would an NOS 1950's WFL, Ludwig, Slingerland, Gretsch
or Rogers kit bring vs normal good condition? Probably 2X to 3X. Cymbals aren't much different.
