I call these lamps "cloudtoppers" since the top isn't completely clear. Can anyone date this? The etches on both lamps are the same.

I noticed this was a common thing among fully coated Westy lamps. Kinda cool since you can sorta see into the lamp. Not used to seeing two numbers on the left... If there was no "0" I'd say 1975? But with the "0" I don't know.

Wow, almost 40 years old.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Ah so the "5" is May... So is the "R" the referring to the lamp being a non-extinguishing model (as opposed to the ones that extinguish when the envelope is shattered)?

The R means it will still run (not a safety lamp) even if broken unless you shut it off.
