This must have been very early samples of our caps, do you remember how long ago??
(Not an issue as far as exchanging them is concerned, by the way!)
We no longer make the copper foil caps with this type of seal, for exactly this reason, the silver caps on the other hand do not have this problem as they use mylar film not paper in oil.
It is quite true that when the seal breaks the cap's sound deteriorates.
I had severall orders in the last years , all by Philippe (AN France), the last was this summer. But we don't know how long components were on stock .
For example I had some 0,22uF old and new model , and the last order
concerned 0,015uF and I received old models, this value being certainly less demanded than 0,22uF.
I fear I have not keeped them all , so I will return You what remains.
Send me what you have, or give them to Philippe, and I shall collect when I am in Paris next, make sure your details are with the caps and I shall send the replacements directly to you.
