The KT76 is an early post war audio beam tetrode designed for universal mains receivers. The heater current is 160 mA which is unusual.
The operating conditions state a 300 Ω cathode resistor and an anode load of 5,000 Ω for an output of up to 2 Watts with 4.5% distortion.
The Osram paper label to brand this M-OV valve.
The inside of the envelope is coated and this obscures the electrodes. At the dome the U shaped control grid cooling fin can be seen.
The wide glass tube envelope is 29 mm in diameter, and excluding the IO base pins is 79 mm tall.
References: 1040 & 1043. Type KT76 was first introduced in 1948.
