Brand new ones from W.E. are $3099 for a matched quad. They also have plates rated for 40 watts, and a 40,000 hr expected lifespan.

They were tested yet the seal is unbroken? Hoax? Fraud?

 

Quote:

The gennuine ahticle (sic) has two paper seals on each end of the box; a serial number at the bottom of the box which matches the permanently engraved one in the base of the valve; a curve-trace paper for that serial #; a non-transferrable 1-year warranty with Westrex Corporation which must be registered via the enclosed form (self-addressed envelope is included) to extend beyond the limited 90-day guarantee.


WEs without engraved serial numbers are production rejects and not officially in circulation. Unless it's got an engraved serial #, there's no warranty, the valve in question hasn't met its specs and Western Electric never meant for it to be used by paying consumers.

They need to work on their website software. It is unlikely a potential buyer will be interested in what they suggest: $19,999 vs $9,98?! Quite a difference!
