I found this in a drawer in my grandparents' garage, under the light with the Westy Blackenders and the GE Bonus Line Ballast.

80's.

Hmm weird that the plug is on top of the switch. I have only ever seen the switch on top, which makes more sense, as the cord to whatever you are plugging in is going to hang down and obstruct the switch, unless you install it "upside-down" with the ground pin up, but then the switch operates in the "wrong" direction as well. Any one I've seen has "on" to the left like this one.

@fluorescent lover 40, Thank you for dating this! The outlet style looks the same as some original outlets in the 1980s house I live in

Just found out that this switch is a snap switch!

Awesome! The hard "SNAP" switches are the best! For a bedroom I think I'd prefer mercury switches though.

Does the plug have a ground? It could be '70s if it doesn't.

The plug has no ground. I'll post a better picture of it. I have it in my own collection now.

This is harder to push than a normal switch and when you get to a certain point, it SNAPs very hard. Do some eBay sellers still sell snap switches and mercury switches?

This is one of my favorites in your electrical collection! Its cool that it's still in the original packaging.

Based on the package design and that the outlet is above the switch I'd say this one is from the 70's.

Cool! I have a Leviton duplex single pole snap switch that has a similar design. It is from September 1984.
