    No chance. The capacitor and the rest of the PSU were inside a completely enclosing steel box with only grilled vents for the fan and air intake. I was probably the first person to open the box since it was manufactured. The box was probably needed to shield the adjacent floppy disk drives from the EM field leaking out of the constant voltage transformer.

    So some guy in Purchasing probably got a heckuva deal on the mislabeled jobs and it was determined that the mis-marking didn't matter to the vendor. Rather than scrap the whole run of caps, it's better to find a customer for them, even if you take a shellacking on the price.
