Default Zildijan K Series [Instanbul] - HELP!!

Hello, check out my other posts here, for pictures:http://www.vintagedrumforum.com/showthread.php?t=15609

I'd like to know the prices of the cymbals please.
The sizes are:

Crash - 16"
Crash/Ride - 15"
Hi-Hat - 14"

These are 1950s Istanbul Zildijan K Series cymbals, with old stamps.
A price would be amazing, thanks!

Okay, but I saw a crash 22" on ebay for $3,000

The cymbals are 1950s original Istanbul Zildijan K Series, with the original old stamps. They are apparently rare

i would suggest emailing

A. Steve Maxwell (maxwelldrums.com)

B. Bill (classicvintagedrums.com)

or

if you plan on selling them on ebay (these days) i would do a .99 cent no reserve auction. if they really are as special as everyone thinks they are then you should have no problem getting what you want for them.

just some advice..

Drumaholic's prices are right on the money. 20" and 22" K's are much, much more desirable than the smaller sizes...even an 18" is significantly lower in value than a 20" old K. A 16" compared to a 22" old K, price wise, is kind of like the difference between a Honda Civic and a Ferrari.

Thanks,
Bill

Everyone is mean here. lol
16" and 22" are different story. You know how different the sizes are and the amount of metal used for them. lol

Allright then. So that means the 22" $3000 K. that you spoke of earlier has absolutely nothing to do with our little discussion concerning the value of YOUR cymbals.

I was just adding that in, as I thought it was a little harsh, that 6" less, came down in over $2.5k value.
