Maybe halophosphate White? I think they made White energy savers pretty late...like into the 2000s.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Usually suntanning lamps, have phosphors that produces only in the UVB and in the UVA, so produces the usual bluish low pressure mercury color, similar to germicidal lamps.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

I said TAN lamps not TANNING.

I was referring to there weird color temperature. [Which is about 2200K to 2500K.] Which gave the lamps a weird TAN color.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

The blue you see is by the camera.

It's tough to tell the color because of the camera effect. They're probably a warmer color like 3000K or something. In contrast to something cooler they'd look really tan in color.

/WW and especially /WWX lamps always look pink to me, not tan. That's why I was thinking these might be /W. They could also be F34/CW...for whatever reason, the energy saver cool whites have sort of yellowish/brownish color compared to full power cool whites.

they could be /W or triphosphor warm white. Triphosphor /WW looks pretty brown/tan to me. My local Walmart used Sylvania /830 lamps in the meat case when they first added the food section but when they relamped the store they used all GE 5000K T8s. Pre-addition, the store used cool white lamps, mostly older Philips Altos with the shield logos with some GE and even Sylvania cool whites mixed in. For some reason they never used the 5000K tubes in that Walmart until after they added onto the store. The store has a 2X4 drop ceiling with the 1X8 lens-less troffers with the staggered 1-lamp-per-cross-section. The addition has an ugly open beam ceiling with suspended GE industrial lights, back when GE made non-LED indoor products.

Currently, the only non-LED lights GE makes at all are the M-250R2, M-250A2, M-400, M-400A, 201SA (NEMA head), Town & Country (coach post top), and the Americana (acorn/globe post top) and all those are only available in HPS. GE no longer makes any MH/PSMH products and they make no indoor non-LED products or non-utility non-LED fixtures. It's very likely that GE will be dropping all non-LED products within the next couple of years. I check their website every few days to make sure no new lights have been dropped. They stopped making the PF-400 Powerflood, which surprised me since it's a popular flood light used by utility companies. NGrid had switched to Cooper lights for 250 and 400W since GE's capacitors are awful but they still use GE M-250R2s for 50, 70, and 100W HPS to my knowledge.
