Default BRIMAR : Reception tested label

I found this wonderfully preserved little paper label attached to an unused B7G BRIMAR valve.
Not seen one of these before.
A great little bit of valve manufacturing history

Some Brimar valves have a quality assurance paper label stuck on, TW "Trust Worthy"

Yes, in the 1950s Brimar "trustworthy" valves had a yellow-triangle-with-a-T logo. I've got a bunch of these [from Vulcan-Bomber STC R4187 receivers and such].

I suppose it's what makes the most sense to the public.
Mutual conductance vs. John Barbirolli conducting the Hallé on the Home Service.

OK I'll get my coat.

I have small collection of blue pin protectors from Mullard valves, each having the pinout of the valve type! I don't think they did this for long though..
