Nice replacement for those R-12 (1383) bulbs in vintage 'streams

I found a source for LED replacement bulbs for the venerable elevator bulbs used in vintage Airstreams. The bulb is a Halco 1383/3WW 2.6W LED; the color is warm white. Attached is a pic of one of the bulbs in the Tin Pickle.
I got mine here:

Halco 1383/3WW/LED LED LED R12 2.6W FL 2700K BA15S PROLED Lamp Bulb [Halco_1383/3WW/LED] - $25.21 : Divine Lighting, Discount Lamps, and Lighting Supplies, LED, and Professional Lighting

Bart, does the light color appear pinkish or peach? I noticed the color temp is 2700 degrees--I don't think I've ever seen anything cooler (eg, warmer/redder) than about 3300 before.

No; the photo is actually a bit warmer than I think it really is... it feels to me to be closer to a halogen bulb color temp. We have quite a bit of 2700K LED strip lighting in the Tin Pickle; this looks a bit cooler.
