Default US stamp Vintage Cymbals

I am trying to come up with a value on these cymbals for selling them but am having trouble finding ones like them. They measure about 11 inches all the way across and one weighs 308g and the other 326g. Both have the US stamp and one has some cracks. I hope the pictures will help. Any information will be helpful. Thanks.

the cracks in the one basically make it null and void. they are just too substantial. the other cymbal would make a nice individual splash cymbal. it could also be paired with another 11" cymbal to make a hi hat. seems like the us stamp was used for an armed forces band if i recall correctly,maybe even a navy band. these are avedis zildjian cymbals from the 40's or early 50's i think. they are commonly called trans stamps or transition stamps. i'd guess around 75 bucks or so for the one individual cymbal as far as value.

Looks like there may be some chatter in the depressed characters. I caught a glimpse of it in the Z. If so then they are from the '40's

Not certain, picture was not very sharp when I enlarged it sufficiently.

those look like trans stamp or military marching cymbals.
The service usually stamped US into them
