Got this and another beauty like it in the recycle center find. Most of these lamps appeared to be in someone's collection. They were all dirty from storage, but appeared lightly or not used.
made 7-67 thanks Silverliner

Nice find, the left hand etch and the odd endcaps are pretty interesting.

My best scores were from estate sale homes built from the 1950`s on down ,

It appears that the home owners would bring home early fluorescent fixtures & bulbs from a factory being remodeled where they worked many years ago & hang these vintage fixtures up in there garage as well as the attic , Over home built work benches of course

Interesting how early 1940`s fluorescent fixtures would show up in a mid to late 1950`s house or garage.

Awesome thinking! I am sure that is how my friend's grandmother acquired that nice F40 halfpiper she had in her basement, which she gave to me when I inquired about it.
I do need to keep a lookout for the estate sales.

Nice lamp! The "wrong end" etches seemed to be common during the Lifeline years.

Very nice! Mfd 7/67. Man I should check out estate sales around here eh? The Los Angeles area is so big you never know what to expect! How do I find them?

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

How do you find them ? No problem, Type in estate sales in youre area , A listing with pictures should appear ,In some cases You can also contact the listing agent & ask them if there are any old fluorescent light fixtures in the garage & in the house - Most of the time they are out in the garage hanging over an old work station - Guys, You are in for a big surprise

Also, Keep in mind that the fluorescent fixtures you are buying off e-bay more then likely came from these estate sales.
Hope this helps
