I have to annouce kudos to 2 excellent sellers on ebay. 1st many thanks to Mike - goes by pig_on_the_wing. Found me two awesome '75s! One the long sought after '75 Reflector with the Single Wire Getter Post and Silver Shield. Tested perfect like NOS. Excellent packing and only a week from the UK. Even included a NOS pair of1980 to boot.
Many thanks Mike!
The other seller is valery_b from the Ukraine. Excellent packing, tubes as pictured. Tested NOS. A beautiful '74 SWGP and a common '82. It was the '74 I was after, next to the '75s these early '70s SWGP Voskhods are excellent!

Ok the deal with this seller - it's a 4 seperate lot in one ad setup. He shows 4 seperate pictures. Now it's hard to tell from each picture what each tube date is - as he has them turned around facing backward. The 1st pic shows what looks like a '83, '76, and '86 can't tell the other. But since he has sold 3 of the lots you don't know what you're going to get sent to you.
It's very important to try and get at least a year matching pair with the same shield color and construction ( wire vs plate getter post). Mismatched pairs muddy the sound quaility - the focus, detail, clarity & transparency. It will also degrade the soundstage. Same goes for section matching in each tube and balance between the tubes in the pair.
I would ask him, what exactly is he sending you! Get a picture with the date codes facing forward, and put it up here. I'll try and get a reading for you. If you don't mention anything to him - it will likely be a mismatched set.
I got a response regarding these tubes:
Sorry for late answer!
So all tubes the same construction.
Date code 09.77, 03.88, 12.88 and 10.75
So two tubes dated 88. In his description it says "matched". But I'm not sure if I should risk it.
Right now I am enjoying telefunken tubes very good detail and sound stage my new favorites
Don't have much info on them but I like them
