Pin identification is always hard on these flying lead Russian tubes. If you cannot see the "slightly" wider gap between pin 1 and pin 8, then find the two leads that are continuous. These will be the filament, pins 4 and 8. These will be the only two continuous leads so you can figure out the rest from identifying these. There should be a hint of red color, or a bump in the glass, between pin 1 and pin 8. Remember the pins are numbered counter clockwise when looking at the bottom. Good luck.
Matt

The data sheet I have appears to counter your statement, though my reading of it could be wrong....

Dhaen,
Yes my mistake, the 6N16B pins are numbered clockwise, sorry for the mistake.

Tony,
There is no need to light the filament, just use a continuity tester to find the filament leads. Using 12V or below for a short time I doubt you will hurt anything.
Matt
