Nice collection - Those bulbs bring back alot of memories.

When I was 6 years old I used to go up & down the neighborhood knocking on peoples doors asking them if they had any light bulbs they wanted to get rid of - People loved it they would leave light bulbs & sometimes boxes full at our front door - I loved light bulbs that much - My parents were embarrased when they found out

My biggest dream in those days was to one day have a collection of fluorescent light fixtures - That ment more to me then anything else.

Hey when I was little, I used to ask for bulbs too! I also offered to exchange one of my bulbs for the one I wanted. I also recall asking for burnt out lamps then I took them home and got the broken ends of the filaments in contact and they worked. What memories!

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

It is right under the halogen headlight light bulb and the S11 Neon light bulb.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Do you have detail of it? If it is Nixie, then very unusual construction...

It could be a neon segment display, I have a few of those. It looks to thin to me to be a Nixie display, since it would need to stack 10 cathodes on each other.

LED display most likely a red display from a calculator or other multidigit display.

At the back of the Neon segment display says Sperry with the logo at the right. I believe the model alphanumeric is SP-425-09. Below the model alphanumeric is PM 147 and says Made in Japan. The construction is ceramic body with glass display. There is a hole at the third digit from the left has short tube with exhaust tip.

Does this help?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I have always liked the Vacuum flourescent displays best. I haven't seen too many items with the Nixie Tubes but they are pretty cool. Do these still work?

I'm sure these VFD and Nixie tube works, but I don't have proper circuit to make it work. However, with static electricity, I'm sure it would glow when it did discharged

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Some nice examples there including those 2 neons, thanks for showing.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.
