I'm not 100% sure what brand they are, but I hope you can see why I thought they might be RCAs.

 

Here is the link for the Socket Savers I got for $8:

I hope this info helps.

Yeah, thanks.  I'm going to grab a pair of those right now.

I took out those d-getters from my Lyr 2 and put them in my dac. Also rolled in 1963 Siemens grey shield CCa in my amp and the end result is fantastic. Rivaling my favorite combo of PW in my amp and Siemens CCa in my dac. Very glad I bought these 7L4 1958 Heerlen d-getters. A truly fantastic tube imo.

Hey guys. I went back to ad for the CCa's. From what I can see, they are greys , with O getters. At first glance I thought A frames after it was mentioned, but the Grey shield is apparent in the pic. Looks like they're still available. I may ask a few questions lol.

Nice find, think I would want a pic of the actual tubes, somebody can get a good deal here with the best offer option.

 



Yeah I wouldn't pay $250 for silver shields and certainly not for A Frames. Heck I wouldn't pay $250 for grey shields. $200 to $225 for greys can be had.

That is just a "stock" photo, I strongly urge you to get a real pic if your buying along with the change code A0 etc. Not saying they are not legit, but here is an example on ebay right now, perfect CCa print used tubes, no spacing between "CCa" and only "Made in Germany" no lot number. Leery of this ebay ad.

I sent a pm asking for pics and codes. There was a huge discussion about print in the original thead. From memory the stock photo that he's using is a legit CCa. There were differences in the actual "a" being used , and irregularities in the color and spacing.
Here's my 65's I had before.

Here's the 63's, I had from Larry.

There's a difference in color, and spacing looks identical to the stock photo in the ad. Notice the differences in the "a" from what I posted compared to your eBay ad

From a construction standpoint, those tubes look legit. Inside the glass, everything looks like it should for an early 1960's "A0" CCa tube. My tubes all have number son the bottom. I can't readily tell what theses tubes have there.

Interesting, did the 65`s only say "Made in Germany" and no batch code?, my 63`s look like your old 63`s, kinda smeary paint, cannot find a pic of it. They are in my amp right now. My 65`s I got a pic.

 

 

 

The stock photo does look like a legit grey shield CCa.

post #12414 of 12448
Well. The only thing that stumps me is the "Made in Germany" print. Neither of my sets of tubes had that, nor any ptinted code. That's not to say they weren't printed on some tubes.
Both sets that I had did have the batch "A0" in the codes. Etched on the 63's, and stamped plates like yours on the 65's.

Do your plates have the codes stamped with the print like this.
That's the actual plate that was on my 65's

Yeah they are 5G`s. Found a pic with the code.

Good god , I completely rekt this thread with those 2 posts. 😂😂😂
post #12418 of 12448
Ah.. Sweet. A0 would be the batch code. I hope I'm not confusing that with the Holland codes. Lol

A0
1‡
5G
 

A = Tube Type (E88CC) (G = E188CC)

0 = Tube Design Revision Number
 
1‡ = Siemens Halske, Munich Factory
 
5 = Year (1965)
G = Month (July)
 
The tubes with the date codes stamped on metal tags ins inside the tube came out sometime in the middle of 1965. These tubes had 3 lines each with 2 characters. Starting in 1966, the metal tags had only two lines of 2 letter codes. The middle line identifying the manufacturer and factory was eliminated.
