This is a DuraBright 14w CFL made for Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. I’ve had this for many years and forgot about it. It came from my grandparents house but I have no idea where they got it from. All I know is that it is pre-2010.

Is it possible these were sent in a kit to customers? I seem to have a vague memory of my parents getting a box from the power company with CFLs and information in the mail. It may have been someone else though.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

This will have a 7 digit code on the base. First 2 digits are the decade and year and second 2 digits are the week. The last 3 digits are some kind of lot/factory code, the exact meaning of which I know not. For example, 1244315 is week 44 of 2012.

Old school FTW!

That's probably where they got it from. I found the bulb in a basket with other types of interesting fluorescent, incandescent, and halogen bulbs in the back of a closet.

I'm going to miss seeing CFLs, even though I never cared for poor-quality instant-starting spiral CFLs. Doesn't that cute photo and the claim of a 9 year warranty inspire happiness? These could be collectable some day...I remember how utilities were subsidizing CFLs and pushing everyone to use them. I try to fire up my spare/collectable CFLs at least every few years for a few hours to keep the capacitors working (I hope).

I'm lampin...
