Is the bell inverted or not? If so, what would it do to the sound?

I have one of these and the bell is fine....lovely cymbal.

"Good condition with wear from use" - Uh... no. :)

This definitely didn´t come from the factory like this. I´ve seen 404s that were completely inverted - like a Novo China - but never one with a, to quote Zildjian, "volcano bell". The 404s were very malleable due to the alloy, the lathing and being rather thin but I doubt you could correct a mishap like this without doing some serious damage.

That asking price is absolutely delusional.

Appears to be inverted. In this case it would be hard to pop it out again. Sound is anyone's guess.
