I`m guessing they were brand new when you bought them?

Great score with that Meinl. I have an 18" Dragon Ride. It is heavily hammered and very trashy. It is a great cymbal which I sometimes use as a dark china like trashy crash. I believe they were early 80's first edition Meinls B20 and hammered in China. I will find some pics of my one and post it.
