Pinnacle were valve distributor based in London who were the principle suppliers of most of the UK Radio and TV repair shops. They bought in huge bulk and as they were in competition with Mullard and Brimar they tended to buy valves from very good factories. Most tended come from Tungsram in Hungary, the Japanese Matsushita factory and Government sources across the world and they branded them Pinnacle. They stated that they offered the pick of the world’s best valve.They certainly did as these valves offer great value for money and all are from good NOS factories
The PCL85/805 triode pentode was designed as a domestic television receiver frame output valve. The original design was the PCL85 and was improved to the PCL805. The designation PCL805/85 just indicates that they are interchangeable.
Most of these appear to be made by Tungsram branded Pinnacle and some are Mazda with Mazda markings but boxed by Pinnacle. Nice quality item in Pinnacle boxes
