The top two are MS-1s from the 50's. The bottom is the 5001 from the 60's. I could probably do a Sierra Mercury Switch history because it was shortlived haha.

Why was it shortlived?

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

It had been made around Mid 50's to when Sola Basics bought them around which is 1969 or 1970. Very few types to do too so it wouldn't be that hard to gather info about it.

I know info for switches and receptacles from the 60's or before. I stopped collecting lights.

Why did Sola Basics discontinue mercury switches?

I don't know. The only other items they kept in production were the Biplex, plates, standard receptacles, despard frames, low voltage despards, and the Spec Grade Switches.
