Zildjian 22 Swish

I think this one is from the 60’s (?)

Mount hole is not round. Small spidery cracks around the mount hole. The edge does not lay flat.

Yours is a good example of how I worked out that the years for the 60s stamp are half a decade out. Based on a detailed study of specific models, year of introduction, and what stamp they have, everything changed. That is most likely a 1975 or 1976 produced Pang cymbal. That's about as accurate as we can get, in part because cymbals may go into production in the factory later in the year before introduction.

It may very well be that what we call the 70s stamp was in use in the factory at the same time as the 60s stamp, and that the short (1.25") and tall (1.5") versions of the 60s stamp were also in use at the same time. These are the current years established for factory use.

50s small: 1957-196?
60s tall and short: 196? - 1976
70s thin: 197? - 1993
CO (large O) 1982 - 1987

Of course these are subject to amendment when new evidence appears. Note that almost all of the online discussion about hammering and lathing changes used the stamps with the years up to half a decade out to date the changes in the 60s and 70s. Similarly the online discussions of when hammering technology changed are up to half a decade out. Similarly the online discussion of what cymbals are early vs late 60s and early vs late 70s have the same issue of being up to half a decade out.

I’m glad it sold! I was thinking of buying it and I didn’t even need it. Besides, I’m not even a Zildjian guy. ;-)
