Can you guys help me identify this tube? Been looking at the omni classification charts but I don't know what I'm doing lol

I found the part # matches this one in the omni 8 section. Does this seem correct?

Its an ITT (later Exelis, now Elbit America) tube that was made on the 49th week of 2009. Probably fell under the the Omni VII contract minimums.

Those Omni VII contract minimums are pretty good performing tubes and hopefully it has good cosmetics on the screen. Known as thin filmed (Pinnacle tubes).

That's what it appears to be to me. Albeit, I am not an expert by any means and one will likely come along soon.

What is puzzling to me is the Warranty runs to Jan15 which means about a five year warranty. If memory serves me correct, that is the first time I have seen a warranty that long on tubes made during that era for the Government, (usually about a year after manufacture date) is what I remember.

Are you going off the date of manufacture?
