Box Of Crusty Antique Triodes

Jim Hunter Klipsch audio history museum curator picked these up at an auction. This is one of the best tube scores I've had in a while. There are 12 45 globes and a few 26, 27, 347,112, and various ancients.
 There were 5 testing strong and 1 weak with 7 showing no glowing filaments. Check out this radiotron!
 Check out the bases and the working blue Arcturus 27.
  

The bases were unreadable and I always wanted to do this. I took some white high gloss paint and wiped on then wiped off leaving the high gloss paint in the engraved bases. Beautiful...
