Default Is this a silver mica capacitor?

I have found a couple of these (attached image).
Am I right in supposing that it is a silver mica capacitor or what is it really?
Thansk to those who can say what it is!

These are old Mica caps not Silver Mica, they are Mil-Spec
Value is a 56 Pfd.. I would say about 25 years old............
