PS - I wonder if the buyer wants to hear that I bought four of the same tubes from the same seller for $69 each?  No, perhaps not...

No...(waves hand)...you don't want to hold on to your Lorenz collection...

(Waves hand again)...Those were not the tubes you were looking for...

(Last wave)...sell them cheap...here's my e-mail address...very_evil_smiley.gif

Whacked.... totally.

 

That listing had almost no information and bad photos!

He said it was from the 1st year of production ..... the stamp was bad  either 58' or 68'

$600  unmatched.   "Tested Good"  Am I missing something?

 

EDIT:

Were they autographed by Otto Lorenz?

Seriously, yes...you missed one thing...how many other Lorenz 3-mica tubes has anyone seen get offered for sale recently? (Mine don't count...I just got incredibly lucky)  Some of us have been pimping these as the best tube ever (yes, I am guilty as well) and that if there was ever an opportunity to snag a set, to go for it.

 

Honestly, I never imagined the bids for the tubes would shoot that high but there are some folks that are bound and determined to get a set...cost be darned.  And who knows, the tubes may pair very well and be matched for all we know.  I sincerely hope the buyer gets the best out of them and feels they are worth it.

Yes, I was bidding but each tube sell it for around $300.  too much for me.

I found the valvo 6922 red label matched pair, so I was curious about valvo I got that instead.

I think that if he had three more of the same tubes, you and I could get a set each!wink_face.gif

I would consider it seriously (if I had the cash)...but you really need two.

Likely only the $300 ones were autographed by Lorenz, Tesla, Ohm and Einstein!!!!
