Considering all of the various materials in the tubes as well, since different materials expand and contract at different rates under these extreme conditions I was afraid that the structural integrity of the tube might be compromised during the cryo. This is evident in in rbs experiences as well, I would say opt out of the cryo. 
+1. That flexing due to extreme cooling and heating, may weaken the vacuum seal. On these tubes - a loss of the vacuum kills the tube (this can be seen as a white frosting where the getter flashing used to be - as it's purpose is to absorb stray gases in the vacuum).

What a score! All '74 Silver Shield SWGPs? These are very hard to find, but a little easier then the '75. The supply of '70s 6n23p SWGP have really dried up. Getting harder to find.

A world class tube.

You hit the motherload! Swing by your local music repair shop and get them tested, if you don't have one. Pickout a balanced pr and have a listen. Let us know what you think.

Yes! Tube World has one for $99 branded Valvo curved d getter 1960. Very tempting... I hear the 6dj8 is better then the 6922...but uber microphonic

Edit - Look at what you made me do! Just bought this on Ebay! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Good-Pinched-Waist-Amperex-Holland-6DJ8-Vacuum-Tube-1957-Date-/161299039496?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item258e2c0508

Edit2- Scratch that on the Tube World Valvo - Not a Pinched Waist. Oh well I have a 6dj8 coming. :-)
