I was helping clean up a shop that was open for 49 years and it had boxes of tubes there as well as a large tester device. I can make a list of the tube numbers and then list them if there is any interest- I would like to sell them in bulk packages.
There could be item there that are discontinued and not available anymore. There was certainly a lot of old reel decks there even a Roberts box of parts.
Let me know.

6D10 is the only Compactron type tube that is worth keeping. All the audio tubes and rectifiers are worth something if not big money. if most of the tubes are TV related stuff like 25L6 can be sold. Just a bout any 2 number antique tube (#45) and 4 number tube is worth something.

I just finished the putting away of many boxes of parts- belts, Idlers, 100K pots by the hundreds, but to have time to go through and write down all the numbers on them that could take a while. I think there are 500 or 600 tubes in the one box. There may have been a thousand tubes there. I will sell them for not a lot of money- I can't think that he kept bad tubes but you never know.
I can get some numbers and list them here in a bit.

Well the guy I was helping clean the place up called and there was a guy who paid $2000 for all the junk in the place. I do not know the model or what it was but it was a very heavy metal built like item. If I go there again to get more stuff I will see if it is still there. It will be a pain to get that thing out. I could see 4 guys needed to carry it up the stairs.
I will get some tube models number to go further on this- no profit is guessing.

I would be interested in any 12AX7, 12AX7A, or 12AX7WA (these are variations of the basic 12AX7 tube) tubes. Also the 12AT7 or the 12AU7 tubes.
And the rectifier tubes like 5AR4, GZ34, 5U4G, and 274B they are pretty much all the same as far as how they work.
I didn't see any of the power tubes listed such as 6L6 (6L6GC/6L6GT), 6V6, EL34, EL84, 5881, KT66, 6550, so if you find any of those, I would be interested, too.
My son uses these tubes in his guitar amplifiers and he occasionally breaks some.

The TV7 is a smallish table-top tester. Used them in the Nav and they work excellent. They are popular
