I hate it when this kind of listing shows up on the Bay. Advertising "New Old Stock" means - to my way of thinking - brand new, unused items that have been sitting around for awhile. This particular listing - like so many others like it - gravels me. Buying a box of old TV-repairman switch outs, and calling them "new", is just wrong. Grrrrrr . . . :evil:

They forgot to state that they are Western Electric tubes manufactured for the companies represented on the tube boxes. :roll:

Those hand lettered blank white boxes came straight from the factory, right?

Some might be new, but the ones with pencil markings aren't. No one knows for sure.

Seller also has a good dozen tube radios for auction, so you'd think he'd know what he was doing. Of course if he were honest, God forbid, he might post, "assortment of tubes, some new, used, and maybe some pulls".

New Parts soldered into and then removed, placed back into the original packaging are "Vacation Parts" - and not, as you point out, NOS. They got a vacation from the packaging and are no longer new parts..... :x

My personal favorite is the type 6005 marked "weak".

Seller doesn't know what he's doing. He knows just enough to resell stuff and that's all. If you look further into the seller's list of other items, you'd see that it comprises mostly of a vast array of general merchandise and collectables. I think this seller is merely a flipper of general merchandise who has gotten his hands on some radios and tubes, possibly from the last Estes auction since he's based not to far from them. His radio descriptions don't sound technical like they were written by a knowledgeable antique radio collector. Judging from the amount of items that the seller currently has up for auction, I'd say flipping is his one of his major sources of income.
