old gear

ok, now that im set to go on here, i was wondering if anyone remembers an old piece of test gear?
not that im looking to buy it but back in the mid and late 60s when i was just getting the bug for radio, i remember going into a cb radio shop and got to know the guy who owned the place. this sparked an interest in radios in me. i wanted to start fixing ham and cb rigs. i have a lot of gear to this day but i remember a large signal generator which he told me cost back then, about 4500 bucks. it appeared to be about a foot wide, just over a foot high and maybe 20 inches deep. had a nixie tube readout more towards the bottom and 2 deviation meters on either side of the top. looked like a black face to me as i recall. seemed that the freq. was controlled by switches that had a stepped click rather than continuous tuning such as a logimetrics 925. does this ring a bell at all in anyones mind? please let me know. its a piece of trivia that im trying to place. thanks all, dave.

If it was a piece of ham radio equip you could try asking in the ham radio section of this fourm.
