This powder can was recently sold on e-bay; |
with the Hunter Arms illustration of the A2; this from 1893
Found this in "Hardware" Magazine, 1894
DuPont "New Trap Powder"
I've not been able to confirm with any period catalogs or ads, but suspect "Minnesota Sporting" was a tradename powder for Janney, Semple, Hill & Co., Minneapolis or Farwell, Ozmun & Kirk, St. Paul; both Hunter Arms distributors. Farwell, Ozmun & Kirk did offer a tradename
"Minnesota Arms Co." gun, but I don't know the maker or time period.
Anyone here get this neat can?
