The 6X5GTY is full wave rectifier for mains powered sets and is probably a 1930s design in a later glass tubular package.
The valve required a 50 Ohm series resistance and could only supply a reservoir capacitor of 8 µF.
See also 6X5G - 6X5GT.
The wide glass tube envelope is 28 mm in diameter and, excluding the IO base pins, is 67 mm tall.
References: Datasheet, 1040 & 1043. Type 6X5GTY was first introduced in 1936.
