Those are at least 110% phony!

To the OP:
They seem small for 2200/50v and may in fact be several voltage ratings below their "sticker value."
They could be as low as 1000u/25v, so beware of applying what appears to be rated voltage.

There were some BG reviews of amplifier kits stating the "25V" caps leaked or oozed below their rating.

By stark comparison, recently purchased late-80s NOS 10,000u/25v Panasonic snap-ins had leakage under half a milliamp after ~3mins at 25v thru a 10k resistor.
