Click on an image to enlarge
This is an excellent original Civil War cannonball fuze. This is the style that came from the Frankford Arsenal and would have originally had the wooden block with the paper label. On the side of the paper you can clearly see the number markings which denote the burn times of the paper fuses that were inside at one time. This one is an original 8 second fuze. These short burn time fuzes were popular with the field artillery. The fuse is just a fraction over 2 inches in overall length and on the side in addition to the lettering it has the hash marks in case you needed to trim the fuze for a shorter burn time. It makes a fine display to put with your shell to show how they worked.
