Delaware, ND (ca.1910's), SBNC. Proof stock certificate of vignette, title and text without border. Vignette of Hercules with large club. Printed on off white toned paper. Laflin & Rand Powder Company collaborated with rival DuPont in 1882 and formed Hercules Powder. In 1902 DuPont purchased Laflin & Rand, operating it as a subsidiary.

Rare explosives and gunpowder certificate.
