I mention this here now because these are not showing on hifishark. Here in the uk Langrex have some GEC 6AS7G NIB (marked as Marconi) for sale. Not cheap, as you would expect. Thought I would highlight it.
Apparently, they also have 5998s in stock.

This 6AS7G CEI listing on the bay seems like a counterfeit….looks like a 6N13S to me with those ufo getters…what do others think?
Normally you could say rebrand but they are labeled “Made in Germany”

Definitely Russian but I would still say rebrand rather than deliberate deception
Could have been assembled in East Germany for example then sold to CEI post reunification and then legitimately "Made in Germany"
Alternatively different countries have different thresholds for the legal use of "Made in XXXX" for some product boxing is enough to qualify
Ultimately if I were going to counterfeit some 6AS7G I would not choose CEI

Sorry, have never bought off of Yahoo auctions myself, that would be a good current price if it was legit.

EDIT: That shipping price is higher than the tube, lol.

The tube prices from yahoo! Japan auctions are quite reasonable compared to ebay, but the shipping prices to European countries or the US are high. Some words of caution: some tube vendors from yahoo auctions do not have the means to measure their tubes, nor they know if the tubes would work or not (probably they are just the middlemen). So read the descriptions carefully before making your bids.
