Default Vintage Sabian 18" Crash Question

Hi folks!! I've got a Sabian crash I'm looking to get rid of to save up for a 2002 crash, but I'm not too familiar with old Sabians. It has a simple stamp with it's name and "Canada" underneath. Obviously, all the ink stamps are no longer there. Based on quick research, it looks like it could be an old AA or stencil logo crash even older than an AA.

What is everyone's thoughts? What could it be worth?

Thank you guys!

Luke

Looks like it could possible be an early HH from the pictures? It looks like it is hammered differently than a traditional AA.

Is that a small keyhole I'm seeing? Assuming condition is good otherwise, I would say around $100 would be a fair asking price, factoring in the keyhole. Weight is also a factor. Thinner might command $5 to $10 more.

I also posted this over at drumforum.org and a couple guys said it was an old AA, not an HH based on the precise hammering (something that only a machine could do, not by hand).

There is a small keyhole developing in the cymbal. But $100 is very fair! That's the price suggested over on the other site as well, so I think I'll stick with that.

I don't have a weight on me, but it is relatively light for an 18" crash. I'll have to weigh it and incorporate that into things. Thanks for the info!
