Those are the Monarch series and they made in the 70s to early 80s,the ones you have.I will be honest with you,the smoked gray bottles are my favorite because they rich in sonics and have the RCA black plate sound.You can get a pretty penny for those on ebay and I can almost bet,you will like the reissues as well or better because they are that good..The tubes you have are rated to 450v and you can run them at 500v without arching risks.

The infomation is included in the data sheet with each tube. Something that most British made GEC/MOV Gold Lions came with. BTW... I agree with Mike, the gray glass KT-66's are absolutely one of the best output tubes ever made. Esp at this power range.
