For being vintage, these have a very good color. Especially compared to 90's and early 2000's 34 watt lamps. These are brand new, with absolutely no end banding.

These are probably halophosphor lamps.

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

What does Halophosphor mean?

Halophosphor or more specifically calcium halophosphate was the base phosphor used in white (i.e. cool white, warm white daylight lamps etc) from when beryllium was banned in 1949 until present. Since the 80's, used has been reduced in favor of more efficient phosphors mixes which improved CRI, spectral distribution and lumen output.

I compared these side-by-side with newer nineties Supersavers, and what I saw was that this lamp has a WAY better color, and is WAY brighter. Then, I compared them to a late eighties Sylvania F40/CW, and the light output was almost identical. Why would they change the lamp to have a yuckier color and be dimmer? These have so much mercury, you can see a ton of it burn off after a few minutes.

Does anyone know how many lumens these lamps are? And what about the SuperSaver II Lite White version?

All you have to do is Google the ordering codes and you'll find that info. CW is 2279, LW is 2430.

Ah, what page did you get that information from? I Googled F40/CW/RS/SS and all I got was websites trying to sell me stuff.

You need to google the current ordering codes. I googled "sylvania f34cw/ss" and found this:

https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/6347/F-40T12CWESS.html

Then I googled "sylvania f34lw/ss" and found this:

http://www.goodmart.com/products/sylvania-f34lw-ss-eco-f40lw-ss-eco-24566.htm (click Specifications)

Then I found this awesome Sylvania lamp catalog which confirms the information from the two above sites:
