Help Identifying a Tube!

Hi All,

Well I have a tough riddle I hope someone can help with.

I have an old one tube regen receiver (looks 20's 'ish)  The problem is the
tube is bad.  I only have a description to give you!  So here goes.

The radio is a battery set first of all.

The tube is a small tubular glass envelope that has a bayonet base with
four small stubby pins.

The inside dimension of the socket is one inch across. The tube base itself
measures about 15/16ths across.  The tube height is three inches.  The only
identifying marks on the tube is the word "GLOBE" stamped on the glass
envelope.  There are no numbers.

The radio itself looks like it is a manufactured radio and not a home brew,
but again there are no identifying marks on that either.

If anyone has a clue as to what this tube may be, please email me with the
news!  Also, if anyone thinks I can sub it with something else let me know
that also.  If the latter is a possibility and you need more info on the
components of the radio itself, I can supply that.

Thanks for any help!

Keith,  KK5FE
