Default 160000 MFD Capaictor Type 500 Help!

Hi, I was clearing my garage out and found this:

Type 500
160000 MFD
Made in USA

Just wondering, is it any use to any one and how much would it be worth?

Thanks for all your help

Why is it that everytime someone finds some "junk" in their garage, they think they can make money on it?

They are fairly large caps good for filtering
a low voltage power supply. Just a bit too low to use for a 15V supply, though marginal
for use if already regulated to 15V

Not having Sangamo date code system memorized
I can't tell how old it is.

Value: zilch -> $3
