This is the description of UK auction 310309367729 of seller yitry
Matched Quad. There must be hundreds to match them. There are not NOS amounts like this... those tubes are never distributed by Siemens, Siemens stopped production in the 70s, later can only appear RFT tubes with Siemens brand. The offered are NOT RFT made El34. Early production? Early productioon would mean SH (Siemens-Halske-)Logo. Wrong logo used for this while designing the fake stamp.
Origin not known. I know. Those ar todays production JJ Tubes. Easy to recognise. The price is not reasonable for JJ, they make at least 80$ per quad extra money Top quality... ok, you know JJs. Stocks getting low? men, work a weekend, print boxes and stamp JJs... then u can go on.
Watch out! This guy sold hundreds of quads, nowadays people appear in german forums telling what the found on ebay when looking for NOS Tubes and describe them as phantastic. On HiFiForum I saw one comparing them to JJ without seeing that them are the same toobs. Must be hundreds of Noobs to scam out there.
