I had a major Nixie tube binge a while back and spend a lot of time
searching eBay for tubes and related items. I only found a small handful of
US manufactured 74141 chips. I bought a half dozen just to have them for
nostalgic reasons. As Jonathan said, the Russian equivalent KM155ID1 is
much more readily available and cheaper for practical use. In my experience
you can find them for around $1 each or a little more. This eBay listing
http://www.ebay.com/itm/260942702575 is for a seller from whom I have
purchase many Nixie related items. The price is high, but consider the free
shipping from Ukraine. If you want higher quantities, he will usually
provide a better price.
