|Early Orange Epoxy LEDs (Unknown Mfr.) ||

Devices included in this entry:
Green / Orange Epoxy LED (2 pin epoxy package; pictured in thumbnail)
Red / Yellow Epoxy LED (2 pin epoxy package)
Here we have an example of a questionable LED design choice: various attempts to make an orange LED by taking a green or red LED die and burying it in colored epoxy. As can be expected, encapsulating a narrow-band LED in off-color epoxy does little to change the color; these LEDs are useful for little more than comic relief.
This rather ugly light emitting diode is most likely an early attempt at making an orange LED by packaging a green LED die in orange epoxy.
Another, slightly less hideous attempt at making an orange LED, this time using a red LED die capped in yellow epoxy.
