I have never seen an OSRAM GEC BC tube with this style of end caps.

Well I can't afford one at the moment but in the future I might consider offering £40 although after seeing that one on ebay go for a lot more I'm not sure if this friend of yours would accept?

I will speak to him on Monday and see what he says Smile

Ah thanks!

You're welcome BTW do you know who made the tube because the end caps are different than osram's end caps
Dez   [May 30, 2011 at 10:44 PM]
unfortunately my friend would not accept the £40 offer Sad

Ah well, I'll leave it for now, thanks anyway! This looks like a later Osram-GEC tube, the earlier ones had a different GLS style cap on.

well I chect the 1975 osram catolog and the end caps on the BC tubes and the cap are like GLS ones

Yeah this will probably be a later one, when GEC bought the 10W SOX lamps out they used the same cap they were using on BC fluorescents at the time.
