For Sale: Tubes and Headphones. 

TUBES

Four 224 Globe-shaped tubes, One Zenith, one
Silvertone and Two Crosley BLUE made by Arcturus.
These all test good. All 4: $30 plus $8.60 priority
flat rate box mailing with tracking.

Three 45 tubes in ST-shaped bulbs. One Raytheon tests
like new. Two RCA test just good, not strong. All 3:
$25 plus $8.60 priority flat rate box mailing with
tracking.

One 10Y tube in ST-shaped bulb, Sylvania JAN, tests
like new. The 10Y is equivalent to an 801 and was used
as the driver in the BC-375 and -191 WWII
transmitters. It can also replace a type 10 in your
Hartley or golden ears amplifier with no changes. $15
plus $8.60 priority flat rate box mailing with
tracking.

HEADPHONES: Classic headphones from the 1920’s era of
early broadcast radio. Some uncommon headphones are in
this group. I can get about 3 pairs of headphones in
one flat rate box. A single pair would probably be
$5.50 or so parcel post with tracking.

pieces and nice cloth headband. But the cloth cord is
unraveling and there is an unoriginal 1/4 inch phone
plug on the end of it. $8

headband has unoriginal adjustment nut on one side.
Bakelite earpieces are cracked and falling apart. The
aluminum back of the earpieces has corrosion that
needs cleaned off. The original rubber cord is in good
shape but it has a US WWII PL-55 plug on the end.

assume

attached top earpiece. Cord terminates in dual-1/4
