Early Red LED (Unknown Mfr.)

Description

Unfortunately, LEDs do not typically have part numbers printed on them. The breadth of unknown and unidentified LEDs is great, and this is yet another anonymous example. In construction this device appears similar to the Monsanto MV1 or MV2, though the die is noticeably brighter. This device also has a significant reduction in gold content: the metal can of the MV1 has been replaced by a shallow metal base. The frosted epoxy construction makes this a much more usable indicator than the MV1, though it unfortunately prevents any microscopic examination of the die.
