Question "New old stock" 3900uF 100V capacitors

Need advice:

There is a listing on ebay for "new old stock" 3900uF 100V Panasonic capacitors (a lot of 100). I asked the seller if they had a date of manufacture. He replied June 30, 1988.

I am planning to build a power supply for a modified ADCOM GFA-555 for which I need 4 15,000 uF/100V capacitors.

Question - would these still be OK to be used in a 4 parallel (16 total) configuration? There is enough space in the cabinet.


PS I am in no way related to/have an association with the seller!

Picture says July 1982.

25 cents the pop is very cheap though, a box full is likely worth over $500 new. If only half is still good, it remains a good deal.
Reforming is the ticket, as usual.
You're welcome to sell some of the remaining 84.
