Need help reading cap


2008-01-07 6:24 pm
I replaced this cap in a guitar, and have not been able to find an article or anyone that can read it. It's a illinois capacitor company cap, reddish brown in color and has the following stamped on one side:

250 S

Anyone know what value this is?

At this point it is more of a curiosity issue than anything else since I have replaced it with a .047uF. Just wonder how far off this thing was.
