For your consideration is a 1983 Paiste 404 series "Crash 16" cymbal. From the "Brown Label" era, this cymbal was made in Switzerland during a time when Paiste was making a hand hammered, non-stamped student line that was far better than other student line quality in the market. They were discontinued shortly after this due to the cymbals being regarded as "too good" for the price they were sold for. This model features a serial number (387422) that indicates its age based on the first number.
*Info provided by cymbal.wiki
Cymbal is in good shape with signs of discoloration and marks throughout. No chips or cracks on the edges and no key hole is present. However, there is a dent in the bell (see photos) that does show through on the reverse side. This doesn't affect playability but could contribute to tone. Cymbal also shows signs of fingerprints and oxidation from sweat. This can be buffed out but the cymbal is priced with this in mind.
Thanks for your consideration!
