Default Old K Istanbul and Avedis Transition Trademark Identification.

Hello, I have a few old K's that I would like to know more about. Here are some photos of the stamps. The cymbals are 16" and 20" and both cymbals are extremely light. The 20" is drilled with four holes and four split rivets are installed.
Any information would be welcomed. Thanks so much.
The third image is an Avedis Transition stamp that I would like to know more about too. This stamp is from a 14" Hi Hat. Any help on that would be great too.

I don't know what happened there, but here are the photos anyway.

OK, so this is not uploading my images.
I'll try to do one at a time.

OK, this is super annoying. It's not working. Please see the above photo. I'll do the rest another time. Sorry that this thread is a big mess.

You have to size them first, then use the manage attachment feature.

They're pretty small images though. I'm uploading straight from my phone. Oh well, I think I should just do it on the laptop. Thanks, man.

For the time being, what we currently have here is either a type I old or a type IIa old stamp. It's a bit ambiguous because of incompletely impressed components.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I thought I just needed it confirmed. It's a 20" @ 1650 gram. Sadly it has a one inch crack running along the groves a couple of inches in from the edge, but it plays just fine. The sound is not affected as far as I can tell. I want to sell it, but with the crack being there I have no idea what kind of price to put in it. I'm afraid tto put it on eBay in case I get like 120 buck for it. Any idea what might be a fair price for something like this?
Thanks again.

The best thing to do is run it as a straight auction and see what the market will bare. A video demo would help you get a better result.

Sound advice. I might wait a while and maybe put some stuff up for sale on the forum. In the meantime I'll just enjoy playing it. It sounds great! I might throw some video sound files up here soon, but I'm having problems uploading stuff these last few days. I contacted the Admin about it. Thanks as always for weighing in and watch this space I suppose. Cheers.
