Hi i have 8 7591 vacuum tubes that were new old stock, i tested these in a scott amplifier and worked well. I carefully removed the glass on each tube to clean both sides as all the tops had silver inside blocking view of tubes light now the tubes have no glass but may still work. asking 50.00 each.

WOW I don't know what to say,

I wonder if he tried to test them after he removed the glass hmmmm. Maybe that's why he removed the ad.

Reminds me of a joke listing Fred Nachbaur posted on ebay for a burned out light bulb, just to see how many burned out bulbs there were.

IIRC, he got 5 bids and $15 for it

Cheers!

There truly is no limit to stupidity. Is this going to be the next audiophool fad: let the vacuum out? May be he figures that this will add "air" (whatever that is) to the sound?
