**Flash Sale** Philips Holland E188CC Matched NOS NIB 1960
Will Ship To: Anywhere
For sale, a pair of matched NOS NIB Philips E188CC, made in Heerlen, Holland, in 1960.
These have matched date codes: VR2 batch, delta code and year "0". So, they're the first batch of O-getter E188CC to come out of Heerlen, mid-year in 1960, right after the VR0 & VR1 D-getter versions, and are awesome tubes. Black absolutely quiet background, transparent and detailed, but musical and balanced; pure Philips magic!
Silkwriting on the tubes is perfect, pins are clean and perfect. I tested one tube out the the pair for 25h, but the two are perfectly NOS (out of 10000h mind you, so it doesn't change anything). The original Philips boxes have an "E.D.F" stamp on them, which stands for "Electricité de France" - the French electric company - so these were used for pretty critical applications in the late 50's and early 60's.
Many here have raved about the "1966 La Radiotechnique E188CC" on the Lyr thread. Well, these are the same tubes, but made earlier and better!
I'm trying to sell these pretty quickly for 130€ ($175~179), and can ship worldwide for 6€. Paypal fees are yours to pay or paypal gift.
Thanks for reading!
