Default Your Nicest, Rarest or Strangest tube

Working on an old Fender these days, I had to dive in my tube archives and found some real old, odd, and funny tubes.
The idea came up of posting a picture of them.
Just to conserve all that old (and new) beauty,
this thread is made for all of us who also want to dig up some
nice tubes and post a picture of it.

I have plenty of them and maybe later Iíll take some pictures from different ones.

Default Now that's what I call cool!

Hey all, sorry...I don't have any pictures to post (I would still call myself a newbie). But I just had to reply to say what a great thread!

Good show!

Default Largest mercury rectifier I have seen...

This tube has so much mercury it covers the glass and has a huge pool that moves around the tube when you turn it.
