The B4 base with the side terminal for the screen grid. This side the gettering is thin and has a slight milky appearance. The other side is mirror bright.
The electrode supports are taken to a glass bead to the side of the anode and so this could be an Azide valve.
The dome carries the identification.
The three grids can easily be seen in this image.
