I'm taking a break from cleaning the garage so I can post my latest find here. In a large box of lids and misc. stuff, I found this can wrapped in 1976 newspaper. I showed it to my husband, who said it was probably just a tobacco can someone put a label on. So I opened it and there's gunpowder in it. Not much, but enough to convince him that it's authentic. ( He was smoking when I was looking at it....).
Dupont Gunpowder can
