Eimac Triode Very Rare VT158

Jeffrey Jackson turned me on to this rarity on eBay. 
Is this a prototype? 
304tl cousin? 
Anyone familiar? 
This is a beauty!

  1. This is a radar transmitting triode. The envelope contains four valves in two pairs. The anodes are connected together but brought out to twin connections.

  3. I think it would make a hell of a bong. What do you think Iain?

    That is indeed some beautiful glass forming. Did you get it from Ebay, Iain?

  4. Very rare valve used in American radar & emitting a 200 KW pulse.
    It was the last in a series of high vacuum, high powered valves.
