Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original complete pack of Civil War cannon shell fuzes. This pack contains all 5 of the original paper fuzes that would have been inserted into the cannon shells to burn down like a candle wick and explode at the right time. These are the 10 Second timed version and is nicely marked on the outside of the greenishtone paper wrapper. These higher time versions are tougher to find than the smaller number field size time fuzes. It also has the 1863 production date and mark from the "FRANKFORD ARSENAL". If you notice below this information it tells the artillery man the directions for getting the fuzes out of the pack. The pieces measures 3 inches by 2-1/8th inches by 3-/4ths inches in overall size. The package is in fine shape and all 5 of the fuses are still inside with one of the cloth strings pulled up to allow one to see a fuze inside. This will make a great addition to any artillery collection.
