Thanks! @ Dave. I'm not sure as to the exact oldest but it would either be the 250w or 175w Bonusline lamps or the 175w Sylvania RS/C lamp. Not sure the exact dates for each. The newest would have the be the Philips 175w /DX

Well most of them are 175w Westinghouse. There are a couple 175 & 250w GE Bonusline, 1 Kenrad 250w /W, 3-4 Sylvania 175w RS and a few others. Keep in mind this is only part of what I have. I probably have 15-25 more not pictured that are stored away which vary from wattage & mfg.

Wow Geoff, a lot! Most of my BT's are Westinghouse also. I also have a 250 watt Kenrad /W...hmmm wat a minute I'll be back.............whew for a min there I thought you stole mine .....I also have Sylvania BTs. The only BT lamps I do not have that you got are the GEs although I do have GE 1000 watt BT that came from a really good friend, you know who.....but again all 1000 watt are BTs

Your collection ROCKS! Do you have any /Ns? I can show you mine one day!

Nice! Why is one on the 3rd row cloudy?

The future of street lighting is Induction, not nasty HPS lights or cr@ppy LED lights!
Preheat CFL's should make a comeback!

I have one like that as well. It's probably well used and has a layer of dust baked onto it.

Actually I dont know if it's dust or not. It's almost like a frosted glass. I know it was not made like that though! It looks really neat when lit though.

Yeah some of what I have are like that, I notice they tend to get like that if they are either in open bottom fixtures or NEMA heads since mostly I see that happen if it comes from an older NEMA fixture or a open bottom...most of the lamps I have that the 175 watt often has that rough service mostly around the base area while 100 watt tend to be on the sides...

Cool, a sea of BT awesomeness!

Nothing like the beautiful cool white light of a coated Mercury Vapor lamp and the soothing hum of it's magnetic ballast.

I do believe all the lamps pictured do work. I couldn't even tell you how many ED lamps I have. I would venture to guess anywhere btw 70-100. too many! Most of which are in my storage unit boxed up. I do have several other MV lamps, I'll eventually get around to posting some pics of the more unusual ones as time allows.
