Showman caps

Showman caps
I recently picked up a '66 Showman-Amp, model AB763 circuit. The coupling caps are odd looking. Similar in size to "orange-drops", but I think they are the dreaded big ugly brown ones everybody says are no good.They are rated for 600vdc,+-10%,and in a small box are the letters "CDE". Anyone know anything about these? I'm gonna replace ALL of the electrolytics anyway, maybe these too ?!?! any help or info is appreciated... CR
