Its a funny looking thing, looks more like a sticky toffee tbh

My best guess would be 1uF 64V but I wouldn't like to hazard a guess at the dielectric. Some kind of switch suppressor maybe ? It all looks a bit mechanical around it.

See what the others think.

I would guess the same on the value.
Dielectric is maybe paper?

Some context would help: type of appliance, connection inside the appliance, etc.
Otherwise, it is almost certainly a wax-dipped paper type, but I would be much less certain about the 1µ/64V value.

Forums specialized in vintage equipments could probably provide answers just by looking at the pic

Swiss "Fribourg" capacitor, manufactured in January 1964.
On the other side of capacitor you should have its value and operating temperature.
And upper or limit freq. maybee.

I suppose it is 0.1uF/250V; 80`C; fo=1,6MHz.....paper or polystyrene.

Located across the motor terminals on a turntable perhaps?

If so, then it’s likely a .01uf, or .1uf.

The cap is for a Thorens TD-124. Thanks for the help. I didn't intend to be mysterious.

You can check index but most people just install three separate caps under the chassis.
