    Hello.

    You are buying an unbroken Photo Multiplier tube. You can see the little vent plates in there. Great for a Vader Reveal or a Reveal lightsaber. Hell, it works best for a Photo Multiplier Reveal, but that’s your decision.

    These things are expensive. I do not believe this one has the copper colored vent plates, but I do not know that for sure as I haven’t broken this open.

    The price includes shipping to the lower 48 USA. I will ship internationally but it will be an additional cost for that. Please request an estimate.

    I accept Paypal but I can not hold this item, therefore the first to pay for this will be the next owner.

    Thank you and Happy Hunting!

    Andy/mugatu

    I used to work for the company that made that photomultiplier. For anyone wishing to take it apart to get at those precious dynodes some care is needed for two particular reasons:
    - It is under vacuum (the brown colour on the input window confirms that - if not under vacuum that brown colour would have disappeared).
    - There is likely to be an antimony coating on the dynodes and adjacent parts (and tiny antimony beads on thin wires that are heated to evaporate onto them).

    The item I was selling all of these parts to have enough money to purchase has slipped away! Last chance to grab this. Its 1/3 to 1/4 what you will pay elsewhere.
