spacequeen7, you can see more from this page onwards at tubemongerlib for the variations of Siemens E88CC tubes: http://www.tubemongerlib.com/gallery2/v/6922/?g2_page=8
can't really see the presence of the logo from the one you show, seems likely to be from the 80s.. quoted from quartz acoustic product info: "As the appearances of Siemens E88CC tubes underwent some significant changes through the production dates, one identifiable trait is the presence of the old Siemens logo on the tube itself. 80s, and even some later 70s productions have no such logo."
here is a pic from the Siemens I had.. it is an A-frame variant..
not sure how different the tube you shown is different from mine.. but you can see more of my impressions at post #3667.. I really like this tube now especially I have added a modded Fostex T50rp to my inventory.. the absolute details and spaciousness drawn from the tube really complement the ortho very very well...
