Here is the data sheet for it. Is it oblong when looking down at it as the picture suggest?

Think he is looking to identify the larger tube on the right, not the PL519 which was provided as a reference..
(Note that the two tubes shown are different types)

Not unusual for a TV horizontal sweep tube intended for series string use in transformerless death traps, err TV sets..

Indeed. Another note: it has no philips etch codes.

Clearly a beamer with aligned grids. A TV H.O., 9 pin magnoval base, late manufacture with the small cap.

It's obviously a Russian 6P45S, nowadays often offered as 6KG6A's or EL509's.

Best regards!
