The Raytheon blue cased transistors were made for approximately five years, from 1955 until the end of the decade.  During that time, millions of units were manufactured, so these are still relatively common devices and can be found in a variety of places, including radios and hearing aids of the 1950s, hamfests and online auctions.  Shown above are two enticing lots of these unique and historic Raytheon devices.
