Ted & David Bacyk & Tom Rowe
Manufacturer part number: 978-0-9676324-0-7
In this volume, the author covers the smaller companies, the agents and the retailers that were such an important part of the gunpowder trade. Oriental and Hercules are, or were, major firms but most of this book is devoted to the names that are all but unknown, except to a few advanced collectors. Again the majority of the examples shown are from the Bacyk collection but another major sorce has been found in the Hagley Museum and Library. Hagley is connected with Dupont and many extremely rare cans, kegs and labels are from them. Samples from a few individual collectors are also included. 312pp.
