A small haul of soviet 1975 LB40 F40T12 fluorescent tubes.

I found these tubes in my local home improvement center. They were set leaning along the lamp bin next to the entrance and when I saw them, took a closer look and took all of them. They were SLZ made LB and one LD F40T12 fluorescent tubes with a little use. Made in 1975 (except one, The LSIMA one) so they are vintage and worth collecting.
The other LISMA tube is one of the very few still existing post-soviet lamp manufacturers, that still produce lamps in original soviet factories. I have a few LISMA Daylight (LD) tubes, this one is LB or labeled (White (Natural white)) The LISMA tube is NOS, probably made in rescent years. All in all, quiet a neat little haul.

Really cool find! Your photo-montages are able to show these cool tubes essentially.

LED-lighting is pseudoscience.
LED-lighting is only a generated demand.
LED-lighting came to life simply by business interest.

Thank you guys! Me likey comments

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;
