Was this heavily used when you got it Eliot?

Yeah it was, picked up a few last summer. This one looked the most hammered!

Whats interesting about this is, the banding seems to have stopped behind the cathode shield????, instead of the usual 3 inch long banding line you usually get Very Happy

Yes I thought that Rich! There's a a bit of blackening in front of it too but hasn't shown up in the photo!

Yep my old 18w Polylux from my bedroom has similar wear marks!

I wonder if this came out of an Arrowslim?
