Default crossover in shed

Hi found this crossover in my shed components test well but I can't quite figure it out. Both caps are the same they are marked and read 3 mfr the coil reads at 0.47 mh. as you can see the one cap and the coil seem to be 12db cross for the tweeter, but I can't understand what the other cap is doing. Any ideas? Thanks

It could be a 3rd order high pass only with the lower terminal part being just a convenient place to solder the wires.

Strictly speaking that's not a crossover

Depends how the connections get hooked up. Coule be a 3rd order hi-pass.

Hi thanks for the input Dave been a long time. The connectors seem to be the round slide on parts. I'm sure that a 3rd order crossover would need two sizes of caps these are the same. I can only think that maybe this was for a tweeter and a super tweeter but I can't get the math to work out they are old and could have been hooked to some strange horns (32 ohms?) I just don't know. Thanks
