Very nice!

I myself have a clear Lifeguard, as well as at least one Deluxe White version, buried in a box back home right now. These are good lamps and will easily go 300,000 hours. Around my area, there are many of these, burning nightly in private area lights since probably the mid '80s, possibly even late '70s in some cases, and still reasonably bright.

Probably one of *THE* best mercury lamps going. Too bad they're discontinued, they were the centennial light bulb of mercury vapor lamps! Not too uncommon to see a well used one make it to 30 years...

What if I told you you could save 100% of your street lighting budget? Don't believe me? Buy an LED street light and run it for a week. the results will leave you in awe. (Aaaaaaand maybe wondering why you swapped that 70w SON)
