USED - K. Zildjian & CIE Constantinople 15.5" Band/Crash Cymbal Pair
K Zildjian & CIE predates K Istanbul and this stamp is widely called "Stamp 1" from the era. It is thought to have been the common stamp from 1900 through around 1913. These are roughy 15.5" cymbals with large raised bells and reinforced center holes for straps. You will see one cymbal with a large piece taken out and still cracks have formed out of that attempted fix. Additionally, there are several edge chunks in the photos and overall some rough edge conditioning.
They are impressive cymbals for their collectability, but not very suitable as playing instruments any longer.
