The title says it all. Well, most of it anyway.
I have a large glass capacitor measuring 3" wide (at its widest point) by 6 1/2" tall (including connecting studs). The glass is clear and the interior copper is clean and shiny. The label on the rim says 'VC 12-20M'. Looks like this one: http://www.tedss.com/VC1220M/?gclid=CKW-xqmdo8ICFa1zMgodlAcASw I must be lucky as that site says there is a limited quantity left in stock. Oh my!
If I squint at the somwhat worn/missing stamped label on one end of the cap, I could convince myself that the words say 'DOLINKO-WILKENS' from some town in NJ. The stamped label on the other end is illegible. I will say the picture at the above link is an accurate visual representation.
Based on the description in the link, the rating is 12 pf, 20000V. I do not have anything that can test up to 20kV and I don't trust my chintzy capacitance meter at such low measurements.
Any interest at $40, shipping included? If no responses are received in a day or so, I will put it up for auction.
