Electronic Component Identification Answered

Hi, I found a capacitor in a old television set and I need some help figuring out the value. All I know is that it is rated for 2KV.

What it says:
MDC
1000K
N3300
2KV

~Thanks~

It looks somewhat like a Metal-Oxide Varistor.

You may be correct. These sample markings seem a better fit in trying to figure out what it is. My guess is the 3300 - year digit and julian date day.
