1616 rectifiers. 5 tubes, none in original boxes but
all tested good and guaranteed. One more untested--a
total of 6 tubes. $20/all

RK-31 pair. These have low emission but possibly still
useable in the right situation. $8/pair

211D. Has some tag on it about being “custom-built”
whatever that means. Has about 50% emission of a 211.

Weird, large mercury rectifier collection--all
untested: 2 tubes labeled VT-166--these have
completely different internal construction and one has
a brass base while the other doesn’t--but they are
labeled the same and have the same pinouts. One
Electrons Inc EL 6C--incredible internal
construction--looks like Flesh Gordon’s space ship.
2-8008 tubes, one GE and one Amperex. $20/all 5 tubes.

815 tubes. 3 tubes, none in boxes, but all with both
sides tested good and guaranteed. Two of these test as
new. One of them has the key-way broken off so be
careful how you put it in the socket. $11/all 3.

3B28 Electronic Enterprises. Untested--used. $3

5894 Amperex Untested. Might be new, probably used. $3

416B. Western Electric. Many available. All untested.
Please inquire.

866A. Two tubes. JAN marked in JAN boxes but made by
Taylor. These look new inside but both bases are loose
and would need glued before these can be used.

HF-120. This is an Amperex equivalent to the 211/VT-4
tube, only built with Amperex quality. Excellent
emission. Ready to perform well in your BC-375, -191
or golden ears amplifier. With data sheet.  $35

111-H. Similar to 211 but plate is brought out to a
top cap. Amp. Factor is 23 vs 12 on 211. Not sure what
this was used in. Untested. With data sheet. $20

6883. 4 tubes. This is the 12-volt 6146. 2 Raytheon
test like new but one has the keyway broken off. One
GE tests brand new. One RCA tests weak. $17/all 4.

Hytron HY51Z. 2 tubes. I have not been able to find
data on these. They look like a beefier version of the
HY51A and HY51B, which were apparently marketed as low
cost alternatives to the RCA type 50 tube. These have
large, ST-19 bulbs, micanol bases and a plate cap
mounted on a ceramic ring like an 866A. Filaments
tested good. Otherwise untested. $35 for the pair.

at one position on the Hickok--maybe because it’s
metal? $5

6L6GC. 2 tubes. These test just fair with 450 and 400
micromhos when 300 is passing. A new tube would test
over 600. $8/both

600/300. $8
