Seems they were less common before the whole lamp ban crap when it started in 1995 , id guess these are from 1990 since they have no GTE era logo HG symbol and no E

1995. I don't think these were affected by the ban.

Young lighting collector striving to save everything he can.

They werent common because they were dim and more expensive to make than cool white. F40CW was the most popular fluorescent lamp ever made. The ban is government saying people are too stupid to make a good choice. F96T12/CW was the next most popular lamp. Government needs to stay out of the lighting buisiness.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

Hmm never seen an OSRAM-era Sylvania with a right-end etch!

These must be right after the F40CW ban, before F40CWP was figured out. Now we saw CWX again as a quick substitute while they figured out /941 after 2012. With Lowes having stopped carrying Sylvania, they are back to being a little harder to find.

And IMHO, if anything ban CWX but keep CW or CWP or '941...higher LPW...

The bans were never about efficiency they were about money.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

They banned the best performing lamps and left the lamps that were always there but never a first choice. All to make the flavor of the day look better. Most people don't realize that.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

Definitely was a ploy to make F32T8 appear more efficient and brighter, by leaving us with dimmer, deluxe halophosphate lamps. IMHO, if anything, ban the deluxe halophosphate and halophosphate and mandate high-efficiency triphosphor lamps, and adjust brightness based on ballast factor.

While not to get political (Admin/mod, please delete my comment if it starts a flaming war), I have heard rumors the current presidential administration might consider rescinding the ban on standard incandescent bulbs. I'd be curious if EPACT92 and its 2012 revisions/additions might also be on the chopping block. Would be interesting to see F40CWs and 100w bulbs again, but I do think LED, etc has advanced so far that they simply might not ever become popular enough.

Even if the light bulb bans were reversed, it was the manufacturers who lobbied for the legislature in the first place, so they're not going to start manufacturing them again. I believe I read on NEMA's website that there is no government enforcement of the legislature and that manufacturers are voluntarily cooperating.

Interesting. I'd expect they would not have lobbied but I could be wrong.

Yeah sadly the damage has been done, too many businesses and some households have already made the change to LED and T8 lamps, the market for T12 is next to nothing at this point among anyone else other than us.

In Canada, CWX by sylvania (now owned by LEDVANCE) can be found at Canadian Tire stores. Its in 34 and 40 watt. The 40w doesn't say deluxe on the slip, but it says it on the bulb itself. They have the bare minimum mercury in them too and startup looks very nasty.
The slip for my pack of 2 I have in use says the following:

2150Lumens
40w
20000 hrs
87 CRI

2150 lumens? That's pitiful by comparison. Design 50 and Daylight Deluxe are a little brighter but not much.
