On German ebay is a vintage one advertised:

https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/paiste-formula-602-china-typ-20-/2256903626-74-1532

I don't know the cymbal nor the seller. Just wanted to add this information for Steve's database. And of course if somebody is interested, as these don't come up every day.

This one is from 1975 with 2088 g

Mine is from 1974 with 2120 g (doesn't look as good).

PS: I know it's just called a 'china type', but the bell makes it a swish (or pang?)

Greetings
Markus

Hi Steve

I would say: yes.

Here some images I just took:

It's very similar, just more dirt. Don't know how to remove this as I fear any abrasive polish will damage the already dim ink stamps.
At least it sounds much better than it looks.

Yes that's the outline version of the trademark stamp. Yours does look a bit grubby. I've got a Deep Ride (SSS7) which has a similar level of dirt and grime on it. On the bottom side it has the remains of old tape. Mine also has very faded ink and I'm leaving it alone. I might get brave and try to clean the old tape off the bottom. But not any time soon.
