You've been busy, Bob. You've put together some nice cardboard boxed bulbs as well. Thanks for adding the pix.

Dave,

If I did this right a photo of the Nash kit should follow.

Dave,

Found a couple more to add. First one is the cylinderical Tung Sol you mentioned. Found the picture on Ebay. The next picture is of the GE tins found in two shades of blue. Then a really nice example of the Hi-Lite tin. I have one of the other Western Auto versions mentioned. Lastly I was fortunate to find one of the Chevy tins with original bulb sleeves. Thought you might like to see them.

Chris

One more that I was lucky enough to find was this Canadian GLA-RE-LESS tin. The bulbs are copper tipped to cut glare. I have not seen another one. Both Dave & Bob are right though. These tins are addictive.

Chris, it's been an honor to look at your collection and thanks for sharing it. The condition on many of them is outstanding.....the Hilite especially as well as the Gla-re-less. The Gla-re-less is new to me and I'd give my right arm for one. :o) The Tung Sol tube is the very one I lost out on recently and thanks for the pic. of the Western Auto variation. That is a hard one to aquire. One question, though. The 2 GE tins....I'm wondering if the light blue one is truely that color since day one or has it become sun faded over time in your opinion. I ask because GE was very predictable with color schemes such as the Edison yellow/white, National used a more middle tone blue and regular GE tended toward dark blue.

Once again, I ask anyone and everyone to submit photos of cabinets, displays, posters, whatever, to create and more varried and complete representation of things to show and collect.
