The early version with the old logo. Given by a electrician, he made probably a conversion cool white -> soft white. This is why the tube seems in very good shape :-D

The base says its GE but the etch says otherwise. Still anice oldie. Ask dave for the datecode. He's Silverliner here. Dunno about others, I know there are others who can tell you how old it is.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

I know for a fact that this lamp probably wasn't made by GE! if you look at the other pic that has this lamp in it you can see the insulators for the endcaps. (but not sure)

Relax you two hyper-worried boys LOL. J/K. Anyway this is from July '65, nice lamp!

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Older than my Sylvania F15T8/CW from Nov '66 and that lamp about had it while yours is still new. Nice catch!

@Mr. Big - I know I saw the other pic.
