Thanks! I ended up cancelling the order because WestinghouseCeramalux was kind enough to advise me that Sylvania never made lamps for Norelco and were probably group relamps. Would have been nice if they had.

One thing to watch for on eBay...sellers often sell a lamp as 'new' but if it doesn't match the name on the sleeve, there's good chance it is the old lamp put into the replacement lamp sleeve.

But here’s the thing. You can buy it, get the lamps, and then report them to eBay for not receiving an item as listed (Ex. The listing said it was NOS but I received heavily used lamps). It’s kind of a scumbag thing to do, but that should teach them to do their research before just writing random garbage into their listing.

There are a lot of sellers on eBay who don't have a clue what they're selling. Perfect example. Several years ago, there was a seller who had many orange DTL open caps for sale. Now, for those of you who don't know what an open cap is, it is basically a gutted photocontrol housing. Intended to be installed in the photocontrol receptacle of a luminaire to keep the light off. Well they had them listed as photocontrols. Their price reflected the price of a photocontrol as well. I think they had them listed for several years. I eventually messaged them interested in buying them all but I told them that they are open caps, not photocontrols and even described what an open cap was. They basically told me that I was wrong and they are photocontrols. Now that I think about it, I should have just purchased them all at their price and then reported the item as not as described when I received them.

Years ago, I got a case of GE F15T8/D lamps on EBay that were advertised as NOS. When I received them, they were not. They all had a 1978 date code but were clearly used and had quite a few hours on them. The box that the came in was a Panasonic fluorescent lamp box too. I contacted the seller and let them know the situation. They sent me a quick apology and told me I could keep the lamps. Sometimes, they simply don't know what they are selling.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

Done the same thing about some so called early 20th century vintage street light pole luminaires that were listed but were actually 90's reproductions and the seller replied back and got smart. The ad is still up even with his phone number to "contact" him which is against Ebay rules. Some clueless person will buy some of them and never realize that these are power company take downs from the 90's.

Wanna tell me the item number and I'll message him saying they're reproductions myself too? Maybe he will change the price if multiple people tell him the same thing.

I reported it and he has other similar post and goose neck fixtures "from NYC" that are listed as vintage but actually reproductions. He knows what they are.

Yeah I bet. Just like the people who have tried to sell the Regent MV wall blasters for over $400.

Hmm. If it's vintage enough I guess you could justify the price.

Others just like it for sale on ebay for less that 12.00. It was a 250 watt Sylvania instead of 175W, my mistake.
