Agree with 8F, 270V but it looks more like a sparkplug for an Ottomotor.

Default Anti-Gravity cap from a UFO?

It says "case negative" so it must be some kind of electrolytic, perhaps from some ex-military stuff that had to withstand very high vibration in a combat vehicle, hence the threaded chassis anchor.

(What a perverted use for nice electronics)
Best-ever T/S parameter spreadsheet.

Default Mil-Spec cap

Hi guys.....
This is a mil-spec cap, The CL 16 series
I would suspect these to be of the older
Vitamin Q type construction I noticed also
the date code of 1977...........
Or of Tantalum type, I do know the CL 65's are
