waiting on these to get shipped to me there was picture of the opposite sides and I looked pretty hard for date codes didn't see any and seller said nothing about date codes, about all he said was 1 at 90% and other at 95% and are closely matched they were a really good deal price wise so I took gamble and bought em lol

another thing that intrigued me was the MECK never heard of that **** and top it off it has octagon stop sign 6v6gt logo plain as day in the picture, isn't that a pretty RCAish trade mark? lol or if they are real raytheons did they also do the stop sign logo?

RCA made lots of "OEM" 6V6 GT tubes.

If it got the stopsign logo itīs probably a RCA manufactured tube.

Or Tung-Sol, Sylvania, Ken-Rad, NU etc - all used the octagon pre-war.

Meck was a radio and TV maker - not a tube maker. So they could have used anybody's tubes. Look for a 280 code for Raytheon.

That's true they did make a ton f them I'm almost starting to to think they could be possible GEs or ken-rads early to mid 50s the meck 1 on the left that plate looks very very similar to the GE black glass black/silver shiny plate and the ge and ken-rads are only 1s ive seen with round mica spacers like that everything else has square/rectangle. wish i could see some top pictures but its more then likely bottom getters you never know wtf your gonna get with 6v6 tubes everybody relabeled and sold **** to each other lol. for example really watch out for them Westinghouse **** they bought and relabeled all kinda Russian and Chinese variants
