If it's a 2002 then it should be made in Switzerland. I believe only their entry level stuff is from Germany. I could be wrong. But to get on topic I haven't heard of a "limited addition". Check it out. If it sounds for and he's asking a good price, buy it. I don't pay much attention to "limited addition" labels. Usually marketing hype. Buy with your ears.
it is made in Germany and it is an 18" Ride. bought it, because it sounded GREAT, both as a ride and crash. strange cymbal. I knew the same thing...only entry level cymbals are made by paiste in Germany. but, it seems we are both wrong.
