I have the following "interesting" 6AS7G tubes. All are "coke bottle" style with original boxes and all test good. They are likely re-labeled RCAs.
I prefer to sell them for $SOLD$ for the pack but I'll entertain other offers.
Here is the list:

CBS/Hytron (pair), same date code 5430
CBS (1 tube), date code 5852

Delco (1 tube), code 274-335

RCA/JAN CRC (1 tube, brown box), date code 3-26
RCA (1 tube, brown box), date code 2-48

I prefer to sell them for $120 for the pack but I'll entertain other ideas...
I have more detailed pics of each tube.



The Delco tube is a RCA .... likely manufactured the 35 week of 1953 or 1963.

A close inspection shows that the base stamping and internal structure is exactly the same on the RCA, Delco and Hytron. It seems that all these tubes are sourced from the same factory or made on similar tooling. So much for labels...
I guess the box might be considered exotic...

Given this, I dropped the price...
