Can Someone Please Identify This Component? A Zener?

CarlH Can Someone Please Identify This Component? A Zener?
I found this component on the rectifier tube socket of my former 1959 Bassman that is not shown on the Fender 5F6-A layout. Can someone please tell me what it is? The link to the picture may not work, so if anyone can fix that too (I cannot seem to get links to work on this board), I would really apppreciate it.

Can't see what is mounted on the rectifier socket.. can you describe what it looks like and how it's wired up?  
re: linkage  
Just link it like this: (the Q&D way)  
The http:// is confusing something in the scripts since you have an "@" in the URL. My 2 cent theory anyhow. :)
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

CarlH I'll try your idea for the link here:

CarlH Nope: that did not fix the link either
You need to see the item in the picture to determine what it is, and that is shown in the linked picture (the item it pretty clear in the picture). Describing it is a hit or mis thing, and I don't have the amp to see exactly how it is hooked up.

I right clicked on the link you posted on Ted’s BBS and opened it as a new page. I then copied the text in the address bar and pasted it between the quotes of this HTML –  
{a href="TEXT OF YOUR LINK" target = "_blank"}link{/a}  
to get -  
{a href="http//" target = "_blank"}link{/a}  
replace the { } brackets with < > and the AT after carlharris with @ to make it work.  
It’s a good last name you have :)
