Keep an eye on eBay. eBay is a strange animal, last year I bought several strings of "Royalite" Christmas lights that look like they've never been used! The plugs don't have any "swipe" marks on them, the sockets and bases had no corrosion on them, they were totally clean except for attic dust, and appeared to have never been removed from packaging. I bought each set for no more $10 shipped! The sets were either C7 GE inside ceramic or C9 GE flame texture outside ceramic. As far as I am concerned, they are NOS.

But, eBay is strange because people will get all worked up over loose bulbs that are obviously of suspect remaining life, for example a bag of well used GE Satin Glow C7s will be bidding at $28, but I bought several NOS boxes of GE Satin Glow strings for $10 shipped a box. It's like people don't look a little more.

And yeah, some BIN prices are ridiculous.

Awesome finding those NOS unusused ‘Royalite’ sets! Yeah that’s bad with certain ones bidding up high on such as the satin glo’s only that prolly have say like a week or less of the bulbs remaining life and they can EOL very soon. I had that happened on some GE lighted ice I had found in a thrift back in the 90s and quite a few went dead in just a few days.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

My NOS GE Satin Glow strings experienced a 1/10 bulb failure, they flashed when initially powered on. makes me wonder how long the rest will last. I think the sets are nearly 50 years old, they were found in an old electrical supplier business that closed. In 50 years or through USPS they must have experienced severe vibration or dropping.
It also tempered my enthusiasm for collecting NOS, I only buy NOS if it's a good deal.
