The shape of the envelope on this one is interesting. It is sorta pointy like the Medium base ED MH lamps but without the dimple. Can you post "portrait" picture of it ? (preferrably zoom in from distance so that the picture really is "flat")

Done. I drew the etch on the right of the lamp so people can see it.

Nice! Though I'm bummed to see that Westy didn't use a BT shape medium base lamp lol.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

I imagined this in a BT-17 envelope, lol. EYE made medium based BT lamps though.

Cool lamp, and the clear shows the construction. At first I thought Westy was using external-amalgam reservoir GE arc tubes, but now I see is is an external amalgam reservoir WESTY arc tube! Cool! Never knew they even MADE medium based HPS lamps!

Have there been more pointy versions of this ? I recall long time ago (and they were old allready back then) seeing some rather pointy shaped Mercs, either EU 125W, or US 100W running on EU 125W gear. They were phosphored but more blueish than usual /DX

That's a typical American B-17 design, at least the earlier ones.

Nice lamp, Dave! These medium-based Westinghouse HPS lamps are really not common out there, and 50 W is really low for a primitive burner construction having niobium end caps with an external amalgam reservoir.
