Default 845 & 300b tubes

Hi All,

I have a bunch of 300b and 845 tubes which I'm trying to work out the manufacturer, they are branded Marantz and have little gold stickers on the base, from what I have read they are hand selected by marantz.

I believe they were out of a new Marantz T-1 amplifier.
The 300b's look very similar to western electric and while dreams are free they're probably not, the 845's I have no idea who makes them.
Any ideas?
Can probably organise some pics if required.

The mica at the top of the 845 is a dead giveaway to being Chinese made. I would strongly suspect the 300Bs are also Chinese. Who knows from which factory.

Just re-read my comment, I meant to say " pretty much thought they might be chinese", apologies if it sounded a bit harsh Hollowstate.
