An unidentified advertisement, with the year 1925, offered the Peerless tubes under the name Peerless Radio Valve Corporation, with an address at 207 St James St, Montreal, Canada. This tube was made by N V Philips in Holland about 1924-25, in an attempt to sell tubes in Canada and the US. GE filed four patent infringement suits against Philips. Both companies realised that years of litigation might follow and agreed to a compromise: RCA and Philips would share patent rights and Philips would stay out of GE/RCA territory. Another tube recently located in the US is a Colvan Products triode identical to the Peerless C5. While there is no type number shown on this tube, it is identical to the Peerless C5. No trace of Colvan Products has so far been found.
