That looks like a Hartrick Type IIb to me. To tell a IIb from a IIIa or IIIb

I look at

MADE IN TURKEY (III same height for the IN)
MADE IN TURKEY (II has shorter IN )

and the relative size of the two ZILDJIANs. In the IIb and IIIa they are about the same height. In the IIIb the lower ZILDJIAN is taller than the upper one.

The other test is whether or not the star just touches the tip of the crescent moon on the right. In the IIb it does, in the IIIa and IIIb the moon is a little smaller and slightly away from the crescent moon.
Star is smaller. We don't them looking for two moons.
It`s a drum,.....Hit It !!
