CV2184 / VCRX298 CRT

Size
This CRT measures 250x65mm overall and has a 12-pin base

This is an electrostatic deflection CRT. It has the serial number 3986 and VCRX298 is hand-written on the label. The screen is listed as YYM.36, which decodes to yellow flash, yellow afterglow, medium persistence. I am not sure what the 36 refers to. The test data specifies a minimum persistance of 5 seconds but does not give a maximum.
