I came across this pair of caps. Can't find any info on them. They are unusual. The case appears to be silver plated, glass insulator on one of the leads. They are very heavy at approx 5oz each. Any info on them would be appreciated.

I found this:
"MIL style CL51, CL52, CL53, and CL54 loss C. rectangular metal-case foil tantalum capacitors to military specification MIL-C-5965."

Thanks Chuck. Thats a good start. I am very curious as to the construction seeing as how they are so heavy. Possibly a very thick case? Possibly very heavily shielded. Have never come across any like these.

The Tantalum is a high density material.
