Mica Capacitors

Does any one know where I can find NOS mica capacitors like the one pictured? This is the first time I've run across a bad mica in my restorations and I don't know where to find a replacement, I can only find new "silver dipped" style. Every other component in the set is undecernable from original so I'd had to have one out of place part keeping me up at night .

Many of those old mica caps are so large that one should be able to use
a Dremel (sp?) tool to cut them in half parallel to the flat side,
grind out the innards, and install a modern usually much smaller cap
inside. If it won't fit at least you could make a sandwich and fill
in the gap with putty and paint it the right color.

I have a couple .004 and .006 each, gold color, made by Solar. Pics available. If you can use any let me know and maybe I can shoot it to you for postage and a bit more.
