Yes, if you can confirm that all segments light up in your tests, then state that they have been tested working, in your listing. Known good tubes command a higher price.

The life of these are dependent on use. As the cathodes wear out, they will get thinner. If the cathode segments still look solid, these could still have plenty of life in them.

These were in with a horde of tubes I got from a silent key estate.. Some of which will be listed, along with other equipment.. His son said that he had wanted to build a nixie clock, but never got to it..
I have one listed on the "bay", just to see what happens.. I was thinking about testing all of the segments so I could say they all work.. With my crude tester, I was not wanting to push my luck and light myself up.. At the time I was concerned with the envelope more than the segments, as I believe these are NOS.. I only wanted to see a few work for a short time.. I would like to recoup my cost, but I am in no hurry..

Sets of 4 or 6 tubes will sell alot quicker than one tube, for obvious reasons. The Nixie enthusiasts will attack like piranhas, particularly if it's a auction.

Sets of 4 or more with sockets? Even bigger results....
