I found these lamps in a box at Ax-man surplus. They were $0.25 each, so I got these ones. There was actually a large box of the silver-band lamps, and that is where I found the Duro-test AT19 lamp. The silver band lamp is made by Phillips, is 124w, and is labeled "Traffic light", the duro-test lamp is 60 watts and rated at 8,000 hours.

That Duro Test lamp, are they rare?
I never saw a traffic lamp with a silver band.
Very nice lamps.

Welp, the Duro-test just met it's end thanks to my own stupidity. I keep all of my incandescents in an empty 12-pack from some old Sunbeam incandescents, and today I was moving it out of my basement, and the box slipped out from me, opened up, and of all the lamps to fall out it just HAD to be the Duro-test. Needless to say, it was followed by a loud swear word and me considering just getting rest of the bulbs before I break them too. Now I have broken glass all over my basement and have to live with the guilt that I just broke a rare lamp.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I've never really thought of these as particularly rare. I have a bunch of different traffic signal lamps both in and out of my signals, as do most other traffic signal collectors.

The really rare lamps are the Par-16 75 watt lamps. These are much, much less common than the 150 watt versions because they were only used in the 3M pedestrian signals, of which there's only a couple of dozen known surviving examples. (I have a Frankenstein example, I found some loose lenses and put them in two pieces of a vehicle signal, which the housings are identical except for the lamps and lenses.). I bought 6 NOS ones lamps from probably the last stash on earth and then a few more used from another collector.
