It does look like an 11X KC Pro circa 2002. Very durable plastic and much sought after for its consistent flight.

If it was worth that much to you, you'd put your name on it, no?

I'm as big an advocate as there can be of making every effort to return discs to their owners, however if the original owner couldn't be bothered to put their name/contact info on the disc, I'm not sure how much effort needs to be made on the finder's part. Particularly if there is no lost and found collection or a community forum of some sort for the course.

Also, is there a standard moratorium on inking a found disc that had no previous markings? A day? A week? A month?

My thoughts exactly.

if it's not inked, I keep it to throw or give it away. I have enough trouble returning discs that ARE inked (no response to texts or calls) to worry about it....

Thread drift.

Does anyone have a rough estimate of how much putting one's name and number on a disc will devalue it percentagewise?

Depends on the disc, where it was put on the disc and how noticeable(huge letters/numbers) it is.

Varies, depending on the disc and condition and collectability.
For that disc, in that condition (from what I could see), best estimate, ~25% plus.

Dx or in-production or really beat up, maybe a buck or two devaluation, ~10%.

But, as I said, depends on SOOOOO many things...

I was told once that the reason 11x KC stuff is so consistent is that they made it for a comparably short period of time.
Many 11x discs had very few runs and tends to be, as Takman said, very consistent from disc to disc.
Also tends to be on the overstable direction of the spectrum.

Yeah maybe be can print up some lost and found flyers! Or even better, pound the pavement and go door to door searching for its rightful owner!
