What does the little sticker on the base of the lamp say?

It's a warning sticker not to put into incandescent sockets.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

SWEET! I have a few GE's in the red/white/black GE "HID" sleeves, H100A38-4/A23 order code, so likely 1979 back to maybe '77. I have some older Westy H38MP100/DX, too, used but nice and still pretty bright, lit one tonight in my 100 watt merc portable light made from a vintage hospital type floor lamp with a swivel reflector and night light! I added an advance postline ballast hose clamped to the stem of the amp just above the base. Works great! The Westy I lit tonight was last lit in 1998, so almost 20 years--God, time flies! It must have been dropped, and then installed, because the arc tube frame is crooked, and there is a hunk of loose glass in the bulb that, under vibration, wore a decent hole in the phosphors in base up, so it is kind of a clear end lamp but works fine! The light was on a switch and not often used, so the lamp has low hours. I have a second one without the bend frame, and it works fine, too! Plus I have NOS Philips versions from Home Cheapo. These are the US made ones, not the newer Chinese junk, so are lifeguards. This is an awesome lamp!

Cool, these A23 Shape Clear Mercury Lamps are very Rare, I wanted one for years and was lucky to get 3 GE HR100-A38/A23 versions from the USA 2 years ago.
