WHOA THERE LESS THAN A QUARTER A PIECE?

Hmmm? Amazon price comes to $0.24 each. very very reasonable. I know that the bulb has an E10 base screw in type. I was just wondering if there is a bulb # printed or embossed on the base? If one does order these bulbs from Amazon just make sure to checkoff the correct voltage. Great find there Ben. Thanks for sharing.

I was just gifted a Marx 666 with a dead headlight. Bulb in mine is 14v. What's correct, 12v/14v, or does it really matter??

Perhaps it's a replacement bulb and the only one on hand or could be easily acquired, or the previous owner wanted to tone down the brightness. Marx transformers peak at just over 12 V. Somewhat less while running an engine.

The 14 volt bulb operated on 12 volts will put out about 74% of the light (rated at 14 volts) but will last longer. I'd just use it.
