Istanbul being the capital of some world’s greatest empires presents an amazing blend of history and modernity.With its key location situated between Europe and Asia, and its 18.000.000 habitants, Istanbul is an important center for many sectors.Still, those that refer to this as a “III” do not provide the nuanced IIIa, IIIb, IIIc that can be found frequently used to distinguish these cymbals and date them. It is interesting the case of each of these examples to make note of the shape of the word “in” in the phrase “Made in Turkey” because the word “in” becomes taller in later stamps.The font for the bottom word “Zildjian” grew taller in this stamp.The intermediate stamp replaces the former block of Arabic text with some sort of gibberish symbols. The English component of this stamp always seems to have some stamping problem, so it is often illegible.It is not Arabic, unless it is the Comic Sans font for Arabic(? The distinguishing feature is the combination of the small-sized star in the crescent with the non-standard symbols where one would expect the Arabic.The so-called new stamp looks very similar to the intermediate stamp, with the main difference being the size and location of the star above the crescent moon.Also, the stamp seemed to imprint the English more thoroughly than with the intermediate stamp, but there is often double stamping, as the cymbalsmiths pressed the stamp twice by hand.

The word “Zildjian” is top-aligned with the K, as though it were a superscript.

It should also be mentioned that these are also often referred to as Stamp III because of the big K.

In fact, that might even be more common than calling it IIb.

Istanbul is a magical seal which unites East and West since the ancient times.

Without a doubt, Istanbul is certainly the most beautiful place of the world.
