The specimen shown is an ML6C (with ceramic base) of WWII vintage. The ML6 was simply a version of the ML4 adapted for operation in sets powered by vehicle batteries. The presentation of the Type designation is typical of M-OV.
ML6s were widely used as RF oscillators in medium-sizes military transmitters.
