The subject of this thread will be the
Ebay auction for the "Mark 1" tubes from 1951....
http://www.ebay.com/itm/...BE-MODULE-/131073757653
... After doing research I decided they are from an early IBM Mainframe such as the 650 (1951-1955) but not Mark 1. It is possible that they could be from an earlier machine. If you're interested I found these pages that go into similar units owned by others.

Interesting. Anyway I won the auction, If anyone is interested in trading similar tube boards from other machines let me know.

More to come...
