Not rare but uncommon. I have a few of these in use at the paintball field. Most likely 2000s.

If it's a standard 400W (M59) lamp these were used a lot inside department stores in the 90s to mid-2000s inside indoor lights. Less glare than the clear lamps and less harsh shadows. I agree with Sean, the packaging makes this look like a mid-2000s or late 2000s lamp. The actual date might be inked on the screw base of the lamp. The newer Sylvania lamps have an exact month day and year.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.
