I picked up this older Zildjian yesterday at a local music shop. It was on consignment and they didnt seem to know much about it.

From the stamp it appears to be from the 60s, if i'm getting it right. Is there any way to narrow it down more than that? Its a 22" ride in really nice shape and weighs in at 2840 grams. Any help would be great.

I agree 1960's and a decent medium weight. I'd like to hear it if you ever get around to doing a little recording.

apparently you have gone here? if so, one can't say much more than 1960's

but that is perfect weight for that ride, nice find!
I had one at 3100 g and it was too pingy

Yup thats exactly the site i used to check it out. I was just hoping maybe someone with more experience knew a way to narrow it down a bit more. I was quite happy to find it. Another ride cymbal was the last thing on my list, but it sounded good and the price seemed right (i think). What should the going rate on a cymbal like this be? After checking on Ebay, the prices are all over the place.
