The vendors price is less than good used ones used to fetch before they started reproducing them.

Oooh they are pricey but it appears that Lang's has 2 versions of Double Contact right angle plugs

Make sure the contacts are going the correct direction. The 1915 should have the contacts vertical with the focus screw on top of the socket.

If you knew how much work is involved in making those, you wouldn't complain about the price!
