That end cap looks different then the ones I normally see - Henry AKA Dimbulb has this exact fluorescent bulb in his collection -

O.K. Here we go This bulb could be late 1939 or early 1940 As Dave AKA Silverliner said & congratulations as this appears to be an early & very rare fluorescent bulb -I thought those endcaps looked a little different

Beautiful! Yes that is an unusual end cap, most likely nickel plated. I have seen Henry's example. Indeed pre WWII.

i was told that during ww2 the mfrs were making the endcaps of plain steel.since the corrosion is green it has to be pre or post war.
i ran it a bit today trying to get a better shot of the print.that didnt help either.it still runs but lots of purple flashing in the dark end.
so it is now just a display item.thanks for the dating!btw i know the mazda trademark was dropped in 1945.definately prewar.
