I found a box of 'display only valves' here yesterday. By which I mean valves the only function of which is to display something. Nixie tubes, of course <groan>

I guess some valves make nice ornaments if you are into that sort of thing. Provided the glass is intact and the vacuum still good (so the getter hasn't turned white), it wouldn't matter if they had no emission or an open-circuit heater. But not ECC83s. And not for 100...
