hi there :eek:

I got 4 very close matched Black Plate RCA 2A3 tubes which never seen electrons. some years ago my friend and I just picked them out of about 50 tubes. these 4 were the closest ones. there were from 101 to 106 mA if my memory served. there are never been powered on a tube amp during these years. just stored in a nice place. we wanted to use them is some project but years passes and we are still beating around the bush. so I decided to sell them as their money will come more handy this rainydays. black plate 2A3s are rare items.

offer me to work something out :)


Edit:


new photos are taken under the sky light. to me they are Grey Plates. so let's consider they are Grey Plates. they sell 300USD/pr (link). so I'm gonna let them go 65USD/each. 260USD for all 4 tubes + free 3-4 days DHL Express delivery for free

if someone want a pair, it will be 150USD/pr + 40USD DHL Express

they are true beauties: :)

important: Uh actually today an old Audiophile just took a look at tubes. he thinks they are Gray Plates! :confused: I don't know if they are Grey or Black. but they are RCA as pictures show. so let's consider they are Gery Plates. I am still not sure what they are. I can take some pictures under the sun light tomorrow and post them here so someone might come up with the answer. but if they are Grey, they are still selling 300USD/pair. so 400USD for 2 pairs with DHL Express 3-4 days delivery for free is still a band for the buck
