60's A's are generally fairly cheap, so I wouldn't say this is a steal. A reasonable price? Yes.

If the cymbals are very thin, or if they just happen to sound really good, I'd say it's worth a go.

I think that's pretty high. They'd have to be real special.

Even if 60s Zs all might have a certain vibe, they vary quite a bit. I've heard 20" 60s As that didn't sound worth 50 bucks, and others that sound like 500, or more to me (which I got for between 70-200$).

I've got a pretty decent set of those from the 60's in nice weights, and no issues. I'd be hard pressed to get more than $500 for them if I ever wanted to sell them. A very nice set of thinner A's was on here a month or 2 ago being sold by Bun E. iirc. Those brought $600 and went quick. Someone is probably dreaming here at the $750 level. In generic condition with typical weights....I'd agree with the $375-$400 range.

Fwiw, the photo doesn't seem to match the sizes. The hats are either 14's or 15's, and there's a crash there smaller than the hats....ie I don't see an 18.

I don't see getting that price either, especially without weights, still present ink or interesting previous ownership.
I sold a 22" 60's A ride with a 70's 17" paper thin crash, a 60's 18" medium & 14" new beats recently for about 450

You're right! There is no way the sizes match the description I'm thinking 22/20/16/14 or 15. Really hard to tell, but I see no 18" either.

Without seeing stamps and weights hard to say what’s what. looks like a nice set of era matching pies. Who knows they could be fantastic....or just good old garden variety A’s
