Description: This is a wooden box measuring 17.5 x 12 x 9.75 inches. It has has dove tailed or finger jointed corners. Two of the corners fit pretty snugly and two are a little warped and a little loose. They are still intact though. The bottom board of the box is cracked along the grain of the wood the entire length of the board. There is a little sliver/chunk of wood missing from the middle of the edge of the bottom board. The wood of the box is scratched and scuffed, but in pretty good shape for old wood. The wood color is a red brown. (The lighting in some of the pictures make it look grey.)



The writing on the box seems to be stamped. The ink(?) is a faded white.



The front and back of the box reads:
ATLAS POWDER CO
WILMINGOTON DELAWARE
EXPLOSIVOS PELIGROSO
I.C.C-14 (This is written inside a rectagular box)



One end of the box has a picture of a globe with "Atlas" written across it and "Explosives" written under the globe. It also says, "REG U.S. PAT. OFF."



The other end of the box reads:
50 LBS. 4 BAGS
ATLAS
FLO-DYN
REG U.S. PAT. OFF.
No 4
TO BE USED ONLY WITH ANNGDYNAMITE PRIMER G
26 462



I am just trying to figure out if this is worth anything. I have seen other boxes similar to this, but none of them have the Spanish phrase, "Explosivos Peligroso" on them. Any help would be appreciated.
