Default Philips Caps M code, what does it mean?

I have a bunch of large 47000 uF Philips caps with a M code. Does anybody know what this M means?


I recently sold a bunch of Philips Caps with a Q code which means special Quality. But I can't find anything abouth the M code.

Depending on where the M sits in the part number, it usually means +/-20% tolerance, standard for big, fat electrolytics.
