I have seen them go for $160 on ebay. You have to look, but they do still pop up in small lots here and there.
How much were they on Ebay when the Russian sellers first started selling them?To look at them,they strongly resemble the 6H6p.

I am not sure what you are asking. The 6H6P is a VERY different tube.
IIRC, back when it all started, you could get the real NOS 6H30's for well under $100.
Mikey IIRC the Rp of the 6n6p is more, ~ 2K, but a mighty fine tube. I built a parafeed linestage around the 6n6p, using Magnequest B7 nickle core transformers. It sounded great, very linear tube, cheap and plentiful.
They are like an ECC99 with a slightly different pin out, only better. Pin 9 is a shield between the 2 triode sections, instead of heater center tap, so only a 6.3v tube.
The mid 60's vintage Reflector/Saratov (also called Foton) tubes with the diamond shaped logo, and the square getter, are the bomb. Those tubes are hard to find now, and command a higher price, but well worth it.
