The seller thought it was related to black powder but was not sure. What is it?

How big is it? Jack

Vlad, it’s a powder tin cap. I’ll check who may be the manufacturer.

Fede: Thanks for the picture of can and cap. I was hard pressed to think that any U.S. powder manufacturer post 1900 would have sold powder in cans with push-on tops. A picture is truly worth a thousand words! Jack
