Brand New, just played to test the sound, no stick marks or finger marks!

This one is close to 2190g which I believe is the weight of the original

Here is the cumulative weight distribution I've got so far:

2056
2068
2070
2118
2134
2164
2166
2172
2186
2196
2200
2208
2210
2252

The median is 2169, call it 2170g. This is the expected spread around the median based on a large study of other models, old and new. Plus or minus 5% is the usual width of variation. The Take 5 variation expressed as range/median is 194/2170 = 9% so it fits right in.

From this video description:


we have

Joe Morello's "Take Five" Cymbal
Specs: Weight: 2192 grams
Size: 20 1/8" (51cm)
Model/Stamp: 1950's Zildjian Small Stamp "B"

The stamp as pictured is missing the top portion which suggests small stamp version "A". The slight oversize at 20 1/8" (51 cm) is possible. 51 cm is 20.0787 inches, and 20 1/8" is 20.125" which converts to 51.1175 cm, so their diameter measurements are all a little haphazard or inaccurate. Only a numbers guy like me would pay close attention to that. They are all 20" given the accuracy of production and measurement error. I've got a similar A Zildjian 20" from that era and it is also slightly oversized. Same with a few other diameter late 50s A Zildjian cymbals I've got.
