There are two versions of this tube. One is Metal ceramic and the other 
is metal glass.  The ceramic version is about a 1/4 to 1/2" taller and 
is the more desirable of the two.  Values vary widely from a little to a 
lot for a good tested ceramic version so I can't really give a dollar 
value. These are used in the HT-33 A and B series amplifiers.  The 
original tubes used in these amps were the metal/glass PL172-8295A, but 
the one of choice is the metal ceramic.   Both should be throughly 
cooked with filament on before applying power.  With the metal/glass I'd 
give it 3 or 4 days at least.
Big tube with coarse fins, easy to cool with a regular fan.
