From what I heard some years ago, Philips has made clear MV lamps in the 80's at 50, 80, 125, 250 and 400 W.

Very rare to find a Philips 50W clear! Equally rare, in the above series they also made 100 and 175W clear, and 1000 and 2000W clear but those had tubular bulbs.

Thanks, I've seen newer Phillips 100's and 175's in clear but I'd NEVER seen or heard of a clear 50W MV except for Eye/Iwasaki.

Osram 50W clear mercury seemed to be rather more common in Europe until the 1980s. They do show up occasionally on Ebay, I think a few collectors here have one. It would be great to complete your set with one of those!

With these clear lamps, you can see the superior quality of EYE lamps.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Are there any more clear 50w mercs on eBay? If so, for what price?

Fluorescent05: yes, seller "johnathan.276 has a lot of 4 for $29.99 with free shipping (where these came from) eBay search "lot of 4 eye mercury" and they should come right up. He also has a lot of 4 75w eye clear mercs for the same price and shipping!
