Rodan-Okaya Tubes

Tubes made by Rodan-Okaya. From their web site:

In 1958, we delivered our first number display tube and started production of display discharge tubes GR-1, GR-2.

In 1962 we registered the trademark “Rodan”

Though they themselves used both “Rodan” and “Rodin”.

You can see that the lettering on the tube is spelled <em>Rodin</em>, which is typical of the earlier tubes.
