almost certainly a standard energy discharge cap from the 70's.. 1 kJ

$1/pound is the going high surplus (i.e. in a retail store) for this kind of

Won't run at 120 kV in air, I'll bet... The creepage distance from the
terminal to the case is probably short enough that you'd have to run it in
oil or SF6.
