Yes, also they are somewhat sought after for vintage hifi restoration, nice score.

Indeed, a nice score. Hifi part suppliers are charging around $20 ea (if I recall) for these. The hifi spin is that they sound too dark and smooth in preamplow voltage apps, but sound better as the voltage swing increases. Dr. Z says they really help his Rt.66, he uses paper in oil caps to couple the PI to the power tubes. I like them a lot myself.
