Default Vintage Zildjian????

This cymbal as listed as a 13" misc. crash.
It looks like an old Zildjian to me...what are your thoughts?

If it's a Zildjian, it'll be stamped as such.

It looks like the right alloy, and I'd say 70's or newer based on lathing/hammering and center hole.

But, there are much smarter people than me on here with regards to old cymbals.

Not a Zildjian.

You can't judge the alloy using a photo. Color balance can be adjusted to make even NS12 look like B-20.

I was going by the lathing as the indication that it was an old Zildjian. This is the best photo on the listing (no high res. closeups unfortunately). Guess I will pass...thanks for the help

Ask if there are any stamps/marks on the cymbal.

If not, it's absolutely not a Zildjian.

Plenty out there (with stamps) so if there's no stamp, no deal!

If the price is right I'd snag it regardless. I personally have an older A where the stamp is hard to find, it likely wasn't struck hard back in the 1950's. But enough is there to find if you know where to look. Other stamps you couldn't miss, like the one on my 1970's Light Ride.

It's a great price but I'm wanted to see if everyone thought it was a Zildjian before I pulled the trigger
