You may very well be right. I just went out to get a closer look at mine =
and it's exactly like the one listed on e-bay. I could get the numbers =
off it and pass them on, if that would help any. Now I'm really curious =
about this, since the guy I bought the jeep from told me everything on it =
was original. Maybe not?
I've never noticed, but the pictures in the service manual do show the =
blackout light to be round on the back, The one I have is more of a =
sideways tear drop shape. Hmmm?!? Thanks for the note.

I don't think this light is for a vehicle much before the mid fifties, due
to the rubber waaterproof connector seen on the backside in the picture. =
don't know when the change over was from the metal DOUGLAS connectors to
the rubber ones, so if someone has that info, it may start the dating of
this light. Most M-38 and M-38A1 ights were round inthe back, this light
looks more modern, M151 perhaps.
