Made between 1966-1969. There is a two-letter date code on the right side of the nameplate towards the top. The namplate is foil and located near the ballast inside the top housing, titled GENERAL (GE) ELECTRIC with MERCURY LUMINAIRE underneath it.

I never spoted those 2 holes between the lens and GE logo in the 80s M250R (?)'s. Is that an older thing or i just missed them ?

This model was discontinued in 1969 in North America but it's possible that the drip holes just weren't drilled. The door is probably cast with no holes and the holes are drilled after? They all have drip holes here. They're for water to drain out in the odd event it finds its way inside.
