Nixies and Other Readout Tubes

 

Here's my current collection of nixie tubes and other tubes that i've been collecting for the past 5 years. I eventually plan to use most of these tubes in small production runs of nixie clocks. All measurements are Height x Width x Digit Height in inches. Philips, National, RCA, and Burroughs tubes are made in the US. All prefixes IN's and IV's are from Russia. Dolam is from Poland.
