(1) Notes: Dates are tricky!, do you take the design date or the date entered service? It's all a bit vague.
"I.O." is the abbreviation for Image Orthicon, a large camera tube in 3 inch and 4.5 inch sizes.
"Plumbicon" is a registered trade mark of Philips, as well as being a Lead Oxide camera tube!
