Default Can you identify this tube? (STC 10)

Hello there guys.
I recently got my hands on the tube in the picture. It is an STC 10 and i think it's something between 6V6 and 6L6. The tube tester reads close to 6V6. It would be appreciated if someone could tell me about this tube and provide me with the tube data.



Thanks in advance,
thanasisg6

S.T.C could be "Standard Telephones and Cables Ltd."
The only pentode listed on radiomuseum.org from this company is ACQa, similar to KT66 and 6L6.
Unfortunately they have no picture. Check heater current, should be 1.3amps @ 6v
ACQa , Tube ACQa; Rohre ACQa ID10918, Vacuum Pentode

Do it not STC 10 type as labeled in the base?

This would point to 6V6-G. And yes, STC is the manufacturer.


Best regards!
