interesting info - do you also have a catalog for Plastic Capacitors - I have 
a small pile of .02mfd 10Kwvdc capacitors - some say "bycap" on them, a couple 
say "plastic capacitors" - I've never heard of the former, but the latter have 
a web site and have been discussed on this list - the Plastic Capacitors in 
question say "LP100-203 - I presume the 203 is the capacitance (with the 3 
being the exponent), and the "100" is the voltage rating in 100's of volts, 
but what might the LP indicate??? paper??

These caps do warm up some when I use them, but so far they haven't quit 
working - I use 2 in series with a 15KV 30 ma Xformer

According to my Condenser Products data sheets the capacitors you have

KM = kraft paper and mylar(polyester)
O  = mineral oil
B  = bakelite ( paper phenolic ) tube
