The De Forest DV-2 is an early triode with an amplification factor (μ) of about eight. We believe the introduction of the DV-2 was about 1923 and the version with the Isolantite base from 1924. The longer label seen on this exhibit dates from 1925.
The paper label is for recording test details.

The wide glass tube envelope is 32 mm in diameter, and excluding the UV base pins is 100 mm tall.
Reference: Bill Condon & 3002. Type DV-2 was first introduced in 1923.
