Hi, I know it maybe a bizzar request, but, wondering if anyone has any info about the wrappers of N.S.Polar Gelignite, or Du Pont Gelignite, (the stuff mentioned in the Highworth Diaries), as I'd like to make up some inert explosives displays, Kev

Hi, sorry can't see anything but a big blank square and a little white square in the top corner with an X in it, Kev

Hi, Yes I'd found that one, but with it being a "made up modern inert replica" I wasn't sure that the wrapper was right, (check out all of the different lengths and colours of German Dynamit, offered as "exact inert replicas"), and I really wanted some expert advise, as to the wording, and style of an original wrapper of Polar or Du Pont, for my own peace of mind really, after all, it just wouldn't look right if it just said in big letters "Gelignite". I know that a lot of Nobel stuff was just wrapped in plain waxed brown paper with the company logo and a number, ie; Nobels Explosive No. 808, and the logo, but Polar or 1940 Du Pont I'm not sure of,

The problem is that no-one will have kept originals.

These guys seem to specialise in replicas and have a large selection but no branded gelignite :(
