Date codes for Sylvania tubes « on: June 24, 2022, 12:09:45 AM » Author: 108CAM
I need help with the date codes on some of my tubes.

I know the Lifelines are December 1979

However I can't figure out if these F20T12 warm whites are from 1965 or 1975

And this tube comes in as 1954

Anyone able to help me? I can get the month on all 3 but the year is a bit more difficult

Fluro starter chimes combined with a 50hz ballast hum and blinking tubes is music to my ears.
