This is my latest eBay find. The sleeve has an old sticker on it that reads "DOP 7/71" I would assume "DOP" means date of purchase ? The date code on this lamp is 7 7 .

Really beautiful lamp, and you are lucky to find one with the old blue and yellow sleeves, these seem to be very rare. Under the date code of 77 there is a dash, indicating that it was made at GE's NELA Park HQ in Cleveland OH - that only made mercury lamps until 1971 when HID production started to be transferred to a new factory at Ravenna OH.

Very nice! I love old GE packaging. The lamps were still decent quality back then too, though not as good as their early 60s Bonusline lamps.

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

Nice find Tim!

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
