I'd forget about the 'k'. To be consistent with what most people
have been saying - it must be 100 pF, probably a 1%'er - but
I'd guess more likely 1000pF, +/-30%.

And weight doesn't really cut it - I have many tiny ceramic
disk caps, 1pF up to 0.1uF, and all about the same size.

I suspect after this thread, a lot of cap tester seller companies
are gonna get calls from piclisters - [however, my personal
superstitions are telling me to throw away anything in doubt,
and just order something from Digikey, and you're pretty certain
what it will be - much cheaper than a cap tester].
