Nice lamp! My only clear 400W merc is a ED37 NOS Norelco lamp. It's a pretty cool lamp. Ever seen a clear BT37? Those are really cool, though my favorite MV lamps are /C BT-shaped clear tops.

Yeah I'm just as surprised as you lol. It was a gift over the summer. There's no etch left on it (wore off) but the internal construction is genuine Norelco stuff. (the dimple at the end of the lamp opposite the base has a spring stretched around it instead of a typical metal ring.) GE tends to use a "crown" like the above lamp.

Oh wow I clicked the bigger picture and saw you did hand-write it in. Looks good! from the normal sized picture it looks just like the real etch. The etch on the Norelco was gone long before I got it but I knew it was 400w Mv since it's the only MV wattage in this size and someone else was able to verify it was a Norelco. I just wrote "Norelco - 400MV" on the base so I don't forget.

Yikes, evanchapmanlightman. I paid for US$ 25 for my brand new bulb back then.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
