Let's hope it's not an old Lucas 2MC.  :-)

I last fitted one of those to a '57 T100 Triumph with Lucas alternator and K2F magneto. OK it wasn't in 57.  It was fitted in '70 or thereabouts. 

That said, I have no idea who actually manufactured those old Lucas capacitors. Who knows.  Maybe the same people that are still making them.

Looks like a 2MC capacitor to go batteryless?

COOL!

I wish!

Sparx makes modern 2MC caps, they work great.

I still have at least half a dozen ORIGINALS that still spark just fine.

The "problem" is usually dirty/loose/broken connections, or overcharging due to failed/improperly mounted zener diodes. (In other words, capacitors don't typically "fail" on their own)
It ain't braggin' if ya done it.
