Default Another unknown tube

OK, so among a large collection of tubes i just bought was this one. The bottle size is the same as 6F6G, it has the same connections, but the plate structures are much bigger. It test very much like a 6L6G on my Avo tester, but all the 6L6G's I have seen are in a bigger bottle. The distance between the mica's is about 1.5" (38mm).
Test figures: Vp=Vs=250v, Vg=-16.5v, Ip=46mA, gm=4.2mA/v
Anybody know what it is?

Sorry for the awful pics that my old camera takes this close.

Thanks in advance, Gary

looks like a 6L6GA, same as 19W 6L6 or 6L6G, stuffed into a ST-14 bulb, your transconductance measurement would seem to agree with that

Size and shape is similar to National 6L6G, but National has slightly different top mica spacer. You need to take photo of top and getter.
