  Dupont Letter Openers Reverse.JPG - DUPONT EXPLOSIVES ADVERTISING LETTER OPENERS - DuPont Explosives advertising letter openers in nickeled steel with aluminum slab grips.  The top two are by S.D. Childs Co. in Chicago. The aluminum grips feature images of a dynamite stick, powder can, and box that reads POWDER CARTRIDGES and one side that reads DUPONT EXPLOSIVES, the top opener is engraved with GIANT POWDER on each side and the middle opener is engraved with HERCULES POWDER on each side, length 9 1/4 in., ca. 1915. The bottom letter opener is earlier than the other two, ca. 1900, likely before the government forced breakup of DuPont in 1912.
