Christmas Greetings!... I have a brand new string of lights still on the original packaging card!... just like the light that is on this page at:
http://www.oldchristmastreelights.com/i ... f_lamp.jpg
It is a string of 6 lights: red, blue, yellow, green, read (again), and lastly white. Both my father and grandfather worked at General Electric GE Lighting, Nela Park - Lighting Institute. My father recently gave me a box of old Christmas light and this very-rare piece was part of it. If you are interested in a picture of this string still on its original packinging, I'll gladly email it to you for your site.

I have a couple friends who would love to see this.

So he sent this photo:
