Not a white elephant to me

I got this present in our local radio clubs annual White Elephant Gift Exchange.  I think its great!  From what I can tell based on the markings, is a 200W power triode that was used in many WW2 radios, and is from about 1943-1945 or so.  I am already thinking of a few ham related craft or woodworking projects to use it in.
