Hello All,
I received a few replies, so there is interest!
 are 5 tubes, and I have measured them on my Hickok 752A (minimum good 
is 650).  Unless otherwise noted, bases and top connections are tight. 
 Here are the details:
Tube 1:  Electronic Enterprises JAN 866A, no date/mfg code, something small rattling in the base, measures 1000.Tube 2:  RCA, tube number rubbed off, date code 709, measures 1050.Tube 3:  RCA, JAN CRC-866A, date code H3, measures 1050.Tube 4:  RCA, JAN CRC-866A, date code H3, measures 1050.Tube 5:  RCA, tube number rubbed off, date code 65-26, top cap is slightly loose, measures 1100.

Cost is $5 per tube plus postage.
 on how much risk you wish to take, I believe I can safely pack 2 tubes 
in a 6" cube box with lots of extra cardboard for support.  The other 
option is USPS Medium Flat Rate Box with even more cardboard and maybe 
even internal wood sides (if I have some spare plywood somewhere around 
I estimate a 6" cube box would weigh 1 
pound.  Tubes would ship from 55076.  You can use the ship cost 
estimator at USPS.com to calculate shipping charges.
Hopefully someone will take them all so I will have to pack only 1 box.  :)  PayPal to w_b_morton at hotmail.com works best.  
Please indicate which one(s) you want by the tube number so I can keep track of their respective destinations.
Best Regards,

Hello All,
I have a few from an estate sale - 5, I think.  Anyone interested?  Once I get them tested I can let everyone know the data and count of tubes.  Just sending out a feeler for now to see if I should continue with the effort as the summer 'to-do' list is long.  
Speaking up now does not obligate you to buy anything, nor does it imply you are guaranteed to get one if you are interested.  :)  Once the count and test data are set, I will send out another communication.
Thanks and have a great weekend.
Best Regards,
