The image is a little too small and degraded by the DFO software but it is likely you will find a match here.


I'd say the one nicknamed (Thin Ottoman) Second Stamp in that link. See if you can get us a bigger image.

Here is a more detailed set of images, and I think you have Skinny Ottoman English Bottom 3.


I need to do more analysis and that's taking time because I've had to recode my entire image collection for the pre Trans stamps. I'm still working on a new naming system for these. There are a few inconsistencies to iron out -- like Thin Ottoman vs Skinny Ottoman which are the same thing.

Another picture might help. Might be Pre-Trans (pre-war). For these reasons:

Looks like ZILDJiAN
S under the o of Co.
Ottoman W might be a dash, not two dots.
USA with no Dots, which would be U.S.A. after Pre Trans or Trans
MADEINUSA, instead of MADE IN USA
The E of MADE looks a slightly late of the H of Turkish

The first thing I looked at was the bell (which I usually do). That bell screams pre-war to me.

Maybe Zenstat will come by. He'll know more about the stamp (two different stamps?)

Edit:
HAHAHA! Zenstat beat me to it while I was writing.

Another one. The Ottoman is definitely too far away from the Avedis Zildjian stamp to be 50's. So, two different stamps.
