This was my recent trip back into the 1930's. Though, in any "reputable" shop I'd expect better organization than this. They are all Zildjian 1st stamps. All were placed carefully into position for the at home.... "group" photo.

Last photo is of all the 13's together.
Here are some pics of my 17” 30s Ride. I think it sounds like an 18” AZ Remix breakbeat ride. At one point I discovered a small hairline fracture that I repaired or arrested by drilling along it.You should post of pic of it and/or the stamp. The 1st and 2nd stamps are pretty similar....but with obvious differences, esp. in the Ottoman script. Finding either in 17" and larger sizes is really hard.
It’s possible that it was a military band cymbal or part of a pair of crashes from back when—that being said it makes a great little ride cymbal for me.Pounder, nice to see a 17" first stamp. Not exactly a standard size back then. From the wear pattern it appears it spent a lot of time in a hand cymbal crash pairing.
Thanks. Would be nice to know what "barn" these were kept in all these years. Too bad the long time owner is no longer around to tell the story. Now if only I can find a K Istanbul treasure trove like this.Finds like this keep hope alive that barn finds are still out there. Great score!
