Tung sol 12ax7 vintage black plates? Is the hype true?

I've heard and read several times over the years that original tung sol black plate 12ax7 are amazing sounding tubes and actually sound different from their very common grey plates. People swear they were one of the best USA made black plates ever. I've never heard or had one and understand they are very rare and hard to find to even try one out. Is this all myth or are these tubes really that highly regarded
