Vintage Radio Tubes (Valves)

Pair 864s replaces WD-11

Sorry these have been Sold

I have had several request for these in the past few months.

Matched Pair of JAN CHY 864s, NEW in Original boxes, Tested & Guaranteed Not DOA
$30.00 pair, 25€00 pair

These Military, US Army - US Navy tubes are great replacements for the WD-11 used in the Radiola III
To use these as a replacement for the WD11s, you will need adapter sockets (sometimes available from
Antique Radio Supply) or replace the sockets from bad WD11s.

Made by Hytron, under contract for RCA
