Wasn't this one of the lines that Paiste manufactured...50's? I'm sure someone will know for sure.

Zilko is mentioned on this list:

http://www.nf-drums.com/paiste_fanpa...e_timeline.htm

First in 1935-48 made in Estland (Estonia), and then as Zilko Standard made in Germany (1948-1960). There is also a Zilko Arbiter stamp. I've collected up some of the stamps hoping that some day I might flesh out the information.

I don't now how these relate to your stamp (and the example I've attached) which says Switzerland. The German fan site never mentions Switzerland origins. Neither does the usually helpful Paiste Only Wiki which has to entry at all:

http://www.paiste-only.com/paistewik...hp?title=Zilko

I've got posting rights there so some day I'll add my images and whatever else I can come up with.

As to value, my guess would be $20-$40 as an orphan, but that's not based on solid data in the same way that most of my pricing estimates are. I'm extrapolating from a few sales of Ludwig Paiste and Standard which I've got tucked away in a corner of my Paiste sales database.

Hope this helps.
