NOS Sylvania 100 watt /Dx clear bander with packing remnants

NOS Sylvania 100 watt /Dx clear bander with packing remnants

Click to view full size image

100 watt Sylvania mercury lamp. This is my first BT25 lamp. The seller had this listed as a fully coated BT25 /N with pictures and that was what I ordered but this nice clear bander came instead to my surprise. I guess it's okay since it was pretty cheap anyway. I believe it's dated April 1980, date code is 112. The packaging is in bad shape, I probably won't even hang onto it since it disintegrates more every time I handle it.

Too bad on it not being an /N, as they're really nice lamps. The clearbanders are older than the fully coated BT25s though so you lucked out in that regard.

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

That is true, it's a nice new lamp regardless. I'm still happy with it. Although the /N would have been pretty cool too. I've never had any mercury lamps that weren't clear or /DX, so the other lamp would've changed it up a bit

Great you could add one of these to your collection...I have one of these too!

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

HBL: Go check ebay! I've been finding lots of different mercury lamps on there, I believe I saw more of the BT25's on there you just have to look around

Ceramalux: It is quite a nice lamp!

sorry for the late reply, I just found this picture I ordered a clearbander from E-bay about the same time and wound up with a full coat N instead same seller? either way it took 3 buys from 2 different sellers to get a DX clearbander no great loss though because I ended up with a DX clearbander, a C cleartopper and the full coat N ALL 3 WERE PICTURED AS CLEARBANDERS! Gotta love E-bay !!
