European tubes are easy to evaluate in that respect because the letter codes designate what's inside.  I remember the EABC80 (not sure that's the correct number), which is a diode plus double-diode plus triode.  Intended application, if I remember right, was FM detector (discriminator, double diode), AGC detector (single diode) and audio preamp (triode).
