Default Re: How to date Black Label Paiste 2002 Cymbals

Here is a pic of the 4 Country patent stamp this was used right around 1970 maybe into 1971.

The six country stamp definitely comes into use by 1972 as I found it stamped on a pair of SE with a Bottom: 20xxxx and Top 21xxxx serial. It is possible it could date as far back as 4/1970 as that's when the German patent number was granted.

Do you have any evidence of the 6 country stamp on preserials? I am guessing you do.
