Yes they were used in early digital meters as read out of voltage etc clocks were made using these to give a digital display. Have a look on eBay put in nixies theres many kits available Lou.

Never seen a red-lacquered nixie before - that's interesting.

Do you have any Numitron tubes? They're the ones with the incandescent filaments which make up a seven-segment display.

Hi I remember seeing those filament types years ago they were on the read outs on petrol (gas) pumps. I don't have any and never seen them for sale but I know what you mean. That red coloured one is unique as it has other figures on it, must of been used for a special application.

Yes, I remember incandescent 7 segment display at the gas pump years ago. Apparently, it never caught on due to limit life on the filament. It would be a rare treat if there such a specimen is in someone's collection
