Another RCA NOS 5U4G closely matched pair-VT 244's
03/21/13 at 04:28:32
 
OK,  to help pay for a bunch of NOS tubes I recently purchased, I decided to sell my second (and last) pair of 1940's dated NOS RCA 5U4G's.

Both of these 5U4G  VT 244 military contract tubes are new in their WWII boxes, dated 1944.  

They have black ribbed plates, full top mica with 4 "feelers", bottom foil getter w/indented pill.

No loose particles, bases are tight, pins not corroded, new and pristine condition.  They were tested on a state of the art Amplitrex tube tester, and are closely matched.

Price for the matched pair is $95 plus $10 for Priority Mail shipping with tracking.  US sales only, payment by Paypal.

Thanks for looking!

I should mention:  There is a full refund on these tubes, if you're not satisified. You pay return shipping.

Thanks!
Mike

The price on this difficult to obtain, very early pair of NOS RCA 5U4G's, has been lowered to $85.00.

Thanks

Mike, I've tried to resist. . . but. . . .

I'm in.

(I'm about to head out of town all day with my brother and his wife visiting from Ohio so I may not be able to answer and pay til late tonight or tomorrow).

Mike, decided that it was probably best to just paypal and did.

Lon,  You are now the proud owner of these very nice tubes!  Thanks for the fast payment !  I was hoping you would go for them.

Thanks again,

Just wanted to note that I received the pair from Mike, superbly packed as always, and these are outstanding rectifiers. It's hard for me to qualify exactly as I removed all the bookcases with cds (two deep) that lined two walls of my living room and everything sounds different, but these are special, no disputing that.

Can't wait for my move to be done and set up in the next place and just listening and relaxing again (probably some time in May!)
