Looks like the business end of my carpenter's pencil Temma.

It's a #2 pencil "sharpened" with a pocket knife.

COOL! Have never seen tubes like that before.

They were used for numeric displays starting in the late 50s/early 60s, before LEDs and seven segment displays. They use stacked numbers, and are filled with neon gas. The desired number is energized, and the neon immediately surrounding it glows, forming the numeral. Despite the fact that the digits are stacked, they are surprisingly readable in use. They are usually behind an amber or red tinted filter to increase contrast.

'6' lit up:

Digits behind filter:

And finally, from a few feet away (obviously not a macro), you barely notice the clutter of the things in front of the lighted digit:
