This is an older GE shatter resistant 75w post light. I recently picked this up at a local Ace Hardware and it looks like it’s been around for a while because when I got it, it was covered in dust

I have E17 shaped incandescent light bulb in my collection that I bought new about 40 years ago posted at General Electric Post Light

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I have a case of these. Not as impressive as it sounds, as case quantities of these are 4 lamps.

Old school FTW!

I bought a used LOA HPS fixture at a second hand store that had one of these in it. I guess they thought it was the correct bulb, LOL. I like the E17 shaped bulb though as it looks like an HID. Never was a big fan of the A-shape of bulb. I wonder, though, if these use thinner glass along with the Teflon coating. Of all the incandescent bulbs I had...this is the one that got broken...go figure. They aren't super easy to remove after being broken either...

I'm lampin...

Cool find, mefurd98! 4000 hours is incredible for an incandescent lifespan!

I see you're from Alabama, not too far from me in South Carolina. I've got a few friends from Alabama. Welcome to LG

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!
