Default Re: Instanbul 20" ride from mid 1980s

That's what we call the "spraypainted" logo. If I remember correctly that's the second ink logo which came after the Zilciler (or Zilcier or Zildjiler-- the spelling seems variable) ink logo which got them in trouble with Zildjian when they first appeared in the USA (1984?). Mid 80s anyway. I had a Green Logo one from the pre split days and was interested in them.

These don't seem to get much price love, perhaps because of their tendency to be fairly heavy. If it were 1900g or less maybe it would get to $260 if it is excellent condition, but if it is over 2300g then the most likely price range is $100-$180. This is based on around 20 sales I've recorded over the years.
