I bet your right there Dave..

In the UK I'm sure we produced similar output valves but on the large b4 base in the 20s and 30s, I saw a guys collection of them a few years ago... very impressive, i can't remember the numbers though.

I thought at the time that the anodes looked too small for them to be really good, but it's also about what they are made of....

Those 50s have a similar look.
Nice looking valve all the same
The tube manual is quite like a telephone book. The number of it perfect. It is useful to make it possible to speak with a girl. But we can't see her beautiful face from the telephone number
