Sourced from Ukraine, these are New Old Stock (N.O.S.) Soviet D9V (Д9В) Germanium Diodes. We measured 10 pieces of these on a Peak Atlas DCA55, and the forward voltage on these ranged from ~.37 - .56, with 6 of the 10 pieces at .49 These make a fine replacement for the 1N34A diode, and these are more consistent than the new production 1N34A Germanium diodes we stock. On average, these tend have about .1 higher average forward voltage than most of the other Soviet Germanium Diodes we sell.
IMPORTANT: The orange line on the glass marks the ANODE, which is the opposite of the line on the cathode as is typical of most diodes.
