[sdiy] Is this a three pin cap or ceramic resonator?

It does indeed sound like it could be a 3-terminal capacitor. We use them on
several of our older boards at work, for noise suppression I think. They are
basically a ceramic cap with a loop of wire for the second terminal, often
with two little ferrite beads coming of the seond connection - weird looking
