Vintage Nokorode Soldering Paste Can

A vintage can of Nokorode soldering paste I picked up at the antique fair last weekend. Pretty banged up but great graphics.

 

When I picked it up it felt strangely heavy, so I looked inside - it is still half-full of soldering paste! I don't know if soldering paste has an expiry date, but I don't think I'll try it anyway.

 

Made by the M.W. Dunton Company in Providence, Rhode Island, probably from the 1920s. MW. Dunton was in business for nearly 100 years before being purchased and absorbed by Rectorseal in 1998. More info here: www.dunton.org/archive/MWDuntonCo/MWDunton.htm
