The vacuum tube business was a very incestuous one, so much so that you can rarely trust everything that is printed on a tube. Often, the printed brand or printed country is incorrect. Vacuum tubes were simply a commodity that everyone needed like batteries or light bulbs are today. For the most part, back then no one cared when a tube was made or who made it, they just wanted a good product that would work and bring their radio, amplifier or TV back to life.
Which is part of the reason it can be so hard to figure out today. There were a few different reasons a given company would re-brand or write the wrong country of origin on a tube.

All 4 tubes test strong. The RCA on the far left has a 30 degree slanted disk getter. The other 2 RCA’s have disk getters but aren’t slanted as much. I noticed that there is a delta mark on the bottom of the RCA’s and in between the pins there is a “61” tube on the far left “12” 2nd from left “3” 3rd left.
The Sylvania is on the far right but I couldn’t find any other markings on the tube.

Got just a general odd question if anyone out there knows Sylvania tubes. I ordered 3 sleeves of JAN’s. All of the boxes are parked “Packed “. I know Sylvania used 3-digit date codes from my research, but these have written vertically. Honestly, I’m not worried about the date code. What I found interesting was the etching.
On my one sleeve, it’s the standard black. I also see “AKU” printed in green which is completely wearing off with even a gentle touch next to the JAN designation. The next line says Sylvania
