Nice, one of the original early ones, without the `pop` protection though, from what I understand?

Pop protection?

Yes apparently there was no end of life shutdown on the ballasts on these early electronic lamps! Was a matter as to which would go first - the ballast going pop or the tube overheating and cracking!

Oh! I get you now!

Yes thats it Tom, `end of life shutdown` was the thing I couldn`t think of when I wrote this last night! ROFL

That looks lovely, never seen one with that deep blue band on the body before.

Old box styling too similar to the SLs of the time.
