The vacuum tube business was a very incestuous one, so much so that you can rarely trust everything that is printed on a tube. Often, the printed brand or printed country is incorrect. Vacuum tubes were simply a commodity that everyone needed like batteries or light bulbs are today. For the most part, back then no one cared when a tube was made or who made it, they just wanted a good product that would work and bring their radio, amplifier or TV back to life.
Which is part of the reason it can be so hard to figure out today. There were a few different reasons a given company would re-brand or write the wrong country of origin on a tube. They ran out of stock of one particular type and contracted another company to make them to fulfill an order. This is why you see even major brands like Sylvania with RCA date codes. If they could source the tubes cheaper than they could manufacture them.
Ironically, European tubes like Telefunken and Mullard were seen as inferior to US tubes at the time as they were cheaper and many tubes you will see an RCA labeled tube that was really produced by Telefunken. When trying to identify a tube it makes the most sense to first determine where it was made. This is important for two reasons.

Got just a general odd question if anyone out there knows Sylvania tubes. I ordered 3 sleeves of JAN’s. All of the boxes are parked “Packed “. I know Sylvania used 3-digit date codes from my research, but these have written vertically. Honestly, I’m not worried about the date code.
What I found interesting was the etching. On my one sleeve, it’s the standard black. I also see “AKU” printed in green which is completely wearing off with even a gentle touch next to the JAN designation. The next line says Sylvania Two of the sleeves vary from this one.
