Probably rare in the US is the Brimar 6BS7, a miniature low noise pentode with a top cap for the grid. Probably a variant of the 6BR7.
Philips, it seems were a little confused on the subject of top-cap for the PY82; the line drawing shows the anode connection at the top of the valve, whilst the base diagram shows anode at pin 9!

I had a Marconi valve voltmeter that was fitted with 6BS7 (or 6BS8?) with grid top caps. I converted my Quad IIs to run 6BR7s as suggested by Chris Beeching. Very satisfactory.

The data sheet you linked to shows it quite clearly as a single-ended valve. The only thing on top is the glass sealoff pip.

Did you know the EL81 is completely different from the E81L?

Yes that's right - in the representation of the envelope, but above there is a line drawing showing the anode connection at the top.

? Are you referring to the tube schematic symbol? That's as standard a symbol as you can find; it doesn't imply a top cap.
