Another nixie tube hoard

Hoarding…Yup.  Nice to know that I’m not alone in my insanity.  Here’s “My collection”.  To be fair, there are some VFDs and Dekatrons in there as well.  I’ve salvaged most of my nixies (side view in the plastic flip box, end view in the neighboring cardboard box) from old equipment that I’ve acquired from swap meets, which can be a lot cheaper than resorting to eBay.
