These capacitors look awfully similiar to the small black capacitors on C107 and C108 (located in the VIC box) on the C64 KU-boards that will leak and damage the board. I think they were Matsushita, the logo looking a lot like the Mitsubishi one: http://goput.it/6mm.svg If you have capacitors with this logo on any old board, examine them thoroughly and if there is the slightest doubt replace them!
