I've seen plenty of MV NEMA heads, but I also have seen a 1966-1969 GE M-400, GE M-400R2 (1980's vintage) and a second-generation GE-M1000!

A few houses in my neighborhood have GE MV post top fixtures, a P17 that works at night and a few earlier ones that I'm not sure are used.

A few houses have the Town and Country style MV and HPS lanterns on tall poles. Some places have McGraw/Edison Handyman MV fixtures in use.

There's also a GE post top near me. It doesn't work though. The 3 houses torn down near me had:


NEMA head
2 ITT R175M
McGraw Edison/Handyman
American Electric DR100M (I actually got it, but housing was cracked so I kept the ballast, socket, photocell, labels, and wires it had; it's 100w MV, BTW)


Sadly, all but that one were lost.  Cry
