Not sure about the GE, but the Philips was made November 2007.

Nice one :bulbman:

But I've read somewhere that the white box :lps: having the worse build quality and shorter lamp life. Which is sad, but I do have a few with brown color box but the top section (u-bent) doesn't have metal, which looks even cheaper than this one.

Could be January 1988 or 96, but not 100% sure which  :wndr:

I'd recommend posting pictures in the gallery rather than the forum, they'll probably get more comments there. Only one or two of each lamp, though.

Again, nice score on the GE, Philips SOX are still quite plentiful, but GEs Leicester made lamps are getting very rare now!  ;)

Oops. Let me see if I could move it, I haven't post here for a few years I forgot there is a section for it.  :P

No wondering why it felt like something was missing.
