    An E and a D string.....they are numbered 762 & 764 and stamped on the pack 'For FENDER' with blue silks on each end.

    How old are these strings?

    Never used La Bella.......what should I do with these strings, save them or sell them to someone?

    Or put them to use but with what other strings?

    They are either the 1954 original or deep talking 760FM

    764 / 762 is the part number for second and fourth string... But you are missing the letters that tell the gauge... With the Blue silk they are either FM or M

    These are in the factory wax paper looking pack....there is no mention anywhere of a gauge.

    The other brand names that are mentioned on the pack:

    Kay
    Gibson
    Harmony
    Danelectro
    Magnatone
    Premier
    Supro
    Valco

    The 1st name on the list is Fender and that is what these strings are, indicated by a star in the Fender box.

    These strings are 1960's I'm thinking.....maybe 1950's.
