Question Found a box of old toobs

Going through my treasure (junk, is the beer midgets' definition) i found loads of valves that i didn't know i owned.
One of these lots is in an old RCA/Victor service suitcase. The case has the old RCA/Victor logo on it and appears to be made of some kind of pressed material.
Anyway, there are a few tubes, here is a list.
My question is; are any of these of any use or should i bung the case and contents on ebay.
They may be of use to someone on the site.
Thanks in advance for the many replies i'll surely get.

The list;
1jg6g syl
6l5g hytron
6p5g coronado x2
46 arcturus
79 four star
1h6g syl
1h4g syl
1h4g ge
12ah7 tsol x5
1l4 cunningham
6sk7 rca
3a3 rad tel x2
6cd6a radtel x3
6cd6 nuclear
6dq6 rad tel x3
5y4g sheldon
6cd6g sheldon
6cd6g rad tel
5y4g rca
6g5 rca
5u4ga ge in rca box
jan 3c24 heintz and kaufman x2
27 globe philco fine mesh plate

36 radiocoin
27 ken rad
ny227 national fine mesh plate that is tbular in generic box

The 6L5G, 6P5G, 12AH7, 46, 27/227, 5V4 have value as audio tubes. The rest are radio and a few TV tubes. Unless you plan to build with the ones I listed, it would be best to see the lot, I think. Without those tubes the lot wouldn't bring nearly as much...

46s are great audio tubes and if it's a globe, it has some value. If it's a blue globe it's quite valuable.

Hi,

If you don't want the caddy I would glady take it of your hands.
Have been looking for years, but none would send to europe.
Let know.

Best regards,

Magnus Kofoed

Hi Magnus, it isn't a caddy. It is an old suitcase, probably a salesmans case. I will put up a picture when i get my camera back.

Default BLUE 127's

There are four blue Arcturus 127's well 2x 27 and 2x 127 all four have good tips on them and test as new. They probably are new, but seeing as they are eighty years old calling them new seems odd.
got some blue 56 globes as well,

I would trade the blue 127's and 56's

I have a caddy i'm not attached too... the post to Europe would likely be quite high -- but one could think of amortizing that by shipping something other than air inside it.

Magnus,
If you want a proper caddy i have an old GE caddy. It is a medium sized one. postafe to Norway is going to be a killer. The caddy weighs in at nearly 9 kilos (empty)
