Jack -

It looks to me as though a previous owner broke a few socket pins doing some repair or modification.  It looks like a typical
socket, so you should be able to replace the contacts and fix the problem.

Since you will be rewiring the sockets, you might want to check around and see if there might be a preferred socket pinout that is
different from the original.  It may be that someone came up with wiring to allow a larger selection of plug-in modulator tubes.
