Description

This object is a 10 digit cold-cathode display in a small glass enclosure. The display consists of a round metal plate with the digits "0" through "9" cut around the perimeter. A voltage applied to a flat electrode below a digit causes it to glow. The number is read from the top of the tube. There are 13 pins extending from the bottom of the envelope.
