Per Jack Ward, Transistor Museum -
"Assorted Production Diodes (8 pieces), germanium diodes. Mid-1950s. These units represent a range of production diodes from various companies, including International Rectifier and General Electric (leftmost two devices). The other devices shown in the photo below are unmarked but use case styles typical of mid-1950s production diodes. Common – these are all production level devices and represent standard semiconductor technology from this timeframe."
