    DuPont Black Powder can - ca. 1908?

    Great yard sale find! $2!
    As near as I can determine this is very early 1900's DuPont Powder, maybe black powder but late enough for smokeless.
    Nice label but the tin itself has lost most of its paint. Looks kind of like a small whiskey flask.
    Any thoughts?

    Collector and shooter of guns with selector switches and threaded barrels. Collector of suppressors, SBR's, AOW's and SBS's. Lead and brass scrounger. Never too much brass, lead or components in inventory! Always looking to win beauty contests with my reloads.

    I am not all that familiar with the older DuPont powder can but that one sure looks early. For $2 you can't pass one up like that.

    That's enough to make a guy feel that he should've spent the weekend to yard sales. What a find!
