pics would be better i have a sizzle, 20" that was signed , and i emailed some pics to the company, and surprisingly i found out it was worth about 00, its early 40's though.The thin A Zildjians from the 40s and 50s are sought after by jazz players, so the 20" and 22" thin rides can bring a few hundred dollars each, depending on how nice they are. Even some of the 60s Ks sell for a fairly good premium.Also, larger, thin rides such as 24s are popular with jazz players also. These are going to be significantly more expensive than As.
In the big band era, working with drummers like Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich, he developed the modern range of cymbals — hi-hat, crash, ride, sizzle and so on — that came to define the modern drumming and percussion sound.I purchased them when I bought my Slingerland drums in 1972. If you bought the cymbals in the 70s then my guess would be that the value would not be unusually high.I have two 18" medium crashes, a 18" sizzler, a set of new beat high hats 14" a 20" ride and a 13" crash. 18" crash cymbalsmight be worth -, a 20 ride maybe 5-0, a set of 14" New Beat HHs 5-0. High values for Avedis Zildjians would really be associated more with the cymbals from the 50s or earlier (and maybe the early 60s to some degree). The Ks from the 30s, 40s, 50s are selling for quite a lot, especially the thin rides and the hats.If it doesnt have the serial # of 1994-1996 supplied by Menalaus above, you can still approximate the date.If the Logos, model name and Trademarks can be read from the closest edge, then it was produced from 1982 (or early 80s)-1987.
