Hello all, I just received this Signal Stat model 340 A1, or a rebadged Federal Signal Fire Ball. This version is an older model that still retained the locked base for the bulb. This light came to me with an original dark ruby red lens without the F7 molded into the top. It has been used but not abused as the pictures show. Just a quick clean and polish, no plans to do anything else to it in order to preserve the patina on the metal surfaces, see the pics.

That is in outstanding condition considering its age.

Thanks, it is in really good shape. The power cord appears to have been replaced at some point, but other than that, it is original.

I have some originals in my collection, including my Dad's. I may have a NOS F 7 if that helps.

Thanks, I have some NOS F7's in blue. I am hoping to find an original in blue for it as I only have red original domes in my FB collection and thought it would look good on this Signal Stat light. I know they are hard to come by but maybe I'll get lucky one day!

Chris, a good estimate on vintage might be 1957-1963, based on engineering revisions and no Zip code on the address.
