A 6A10 is rated 1000 PIV.  Always has been, it's an old design.

In looking for a datasheet for the 6A10 diode I came across a
potentially hazardous find.
One datasheet said the 6A10 was a 100 volt PIV diode, while another
said it was a 1,000
volt PIV diode.

So, unless I actually measure the PIV, I am not sure of what I have
and must, for safety sake,
assume the worst.
