It's a Sylvania H39KB-175 from the 1980's. These are always fun to find.

A man has two lives to live, and the second one begins when he realizes he only has one.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

I agree that it’s great to find these. Yours must have not been used much, as the arc tube looks almost like those in my sylvania bulbs, which are NOS.

It has been sitting idle for over 21yrs.


The fixture had a wiring problem so it didnt work

Why can't we just use led retrofit instead of replacing the whole fixture.

That certainly explains why it looks brand new! From the way the bulb looks, I would guess the fixture never worked even when it was first installed. I’m amazed that no one ever bothered to fix the wiring problem.

I just got a ladder and take this out

An incandecent light was close to this fixture that does work
