Thank you for the sound advice. I wound up walking away from that deal. Like you said, there are plenty out there and better to be picky then get stuck with something I’m not 100% happy with.PASS with that crack....even at $100. Many better choices out there. 90-99% of serious buyers won't even consider such a cymbal unless "given away." A 1-3 mm edge crack might be called minor. But a 1 inch (24 mm) crack? That's major. And if you properly drill out that crack and widen the gap a tad to prevent chaffing - it will look sort of nasty. To properly treat a 1" crack like that, you would need to notch out a 1.5" triangle...and then smooth it out to form a flowing curve to remove as much of the stresses as possible. And even then, the crack could come back.
I had a pre-serial 20" 602 at 2400 gms for the past 10 months....for sale locally at $125. Zero interest....even those who looked at it in person....at any price. Only thing wrong with it was the tiniest of a notch/crack in the bell hole - 1-2 mm or so. Probably been there forever. The seller didn't even notice it - I got them to drop the price from $130 to $120....lol. Finally tossed it up on Reverb a few months ago and netted around $118 for it....seller paid around $150 shipped/taxed. There are plenty of these out there. Be fussy when buying vintage, used 20" rides....because most everyone is the same way....and 20" rides are very common.
