We recently purchased the estate of a 94-year-old gentleman who was an electronic genius.
He started building radios when he was 14 and was a ham operator and repairman of all types of electronics until the day he died.
We purchased the estate mostly for the ham radio equipment, he built some pretty impressive linear amps and customized his radios in a very high tech manner.
He was also a hoarder and since he also had lots of useful old stock electrical parts we purchased these as well. We are sure there are folks who could use these and we would hate to see them get thrown in the dump by the family.
This gentleman was very well organized and had most everything marked as to what it was, how it tested, and what it was for etc.
The piece I have in question is a large Sprague Vitamin Q Capacitor. I have tried to find anything like it, to compare it to but have found nothing. It is 15" tall and weighs around 20 pounds.
We want to resell this, but do not know what it is for or any of the specs. I have found a few sites that explain the numbering of these, but none that have the information on these particular numbers. We would like to get this in to the hands of either a collector or someone who could use it, so any information on the specs, and what it would be used in would be most appreciated.
